I am the admin of a Trello Workspace for our work, and in an attempt to free up licenses we need to delete users who have not used Trello in a set period of time. If the user was a sole owner of the board then we do not want to lose those boards in case other users were using them. Is there a way to automate it so that when a user is deleted, any boards that they are sole owners of have the ownership transferred to me?

Hi @Brigham Hunt 

There isn't an automation rule which relates to board ownership as far as I know.

You could add yourself to the boards in bulk though (per user), if this would help? See how to do that here: https://support.atlassian.com/trello/docs/how-to-transfer-board-memberships-to-a-new-account/

Otherwise, you would need to manage this on a per-board basis.

Thanks for the help, Stephen.

This is genuinely a viable solution. I only wanted to check for the possibility of my original idea, but this workaround could help tons.
