How can I give someone admin rights in a Hipchat group? Edited

I am soon going to be leaving my company, but we have a hipchat group that has become a staple of our team. I am the creator of the group, and I am concerned that when my profile is deleted, the group will also be deleted (or at least no one else will be able to add new members).


Is there any way I can give someone else administrative rights to the group without completely deleting the group and starting a new group?

Hi Melissa, 

Sure, it's possible! We're happy that you reached out to us regarding this as it's very important to transfer ownership to another user in case you're leaving the company. 

In order to make the changes, please browse to > Under the owner field, select the admin user who should be the next group owner. 

In case none of the users's in the list should be the owner, you can then browse to > select the user > Change Role from user to admin and then navigate back to the admin panel to transfer the ownership. 

Hope this helps!
