How to transfer ownership and delete old User

1. Log in to the Zoho Sign account, hover on Settings in the left navigation pane, and click Users from the drop-down.

3. Click More Actions and choose Change Ownership from the list of options displayed in the drop-down menu.


4. Select the user to whom the ownership needs to be changed.


Note: Once the ownership is changed, documents, templates, folders, document types, and email domains owned by the user will be transferred to the selected user. This cannot be reverted.
