Admins - Transfer Ownership | Admin Guide - Zoho One

Transfer organization ownership

The user who signed up for the Zoho One account is the owner of the organization, and will remain so until transferring the role to a different user.
Note: Only the current owner can transfer ownership to another user. Admins CANNOT perform this operation.
To change the owner:
  1. Sign in to Zoho One , then click Directory in the left menu.
  2. Go to Organization, then hover over the owner's name.
  3. Click Change Owner, then choose the new owner in the window that pops up.
  4. If needed, use the checkboxes to reassign ownership of individual apps.

  5. Note: Zoho Creator, Zoho Assist, Zoho Survey, Zoho Meeting, Zoho Sites, and Zoho Analytics don't allow multiple admins. If you choose to change their owner, the current owner will lose admin privileges in them.
  6. Click Confirm.
