Changing the owner of an Organization
Updated over a week ago

What's an Owner?

By default, the owner of an Organization is the person who first created the Event or Community, and as such, becomes the main responsible to manage it. This person will have full access to change all settings and information of any events within this community.

However, as people change jobs, it is sometimes necessary for a company to change the person who owns their Organization in Swapcard.

How to:

1) Log in to the Studio.

2) Click on your Organization's name.

3) Select "Settings & Members".

4) Above the Owner's name, click on "Set a new owner", and select among existing members with Admin role who to transfer the ownership of the organisation.

If there is no Admin in your members, you won't be able to click on "Set a new owner". You will have to promote an existing member as Admin or invite a new member with Admin role (learn more here how to do it).

NB: It's important to understand that there can only be one owner per Organization. This is a transfer of ownership from one user to another – it's not about providing ownership rights to an additional member.
