I want to leave a board, but I created it. Can I transfer ownership of the board to another person?

Hi!

 

I created several boards that I now no longer want to be a member of, I tried to leave these boards but because I set them up I can only close the board.

 

Is there a way to transfer ownership of the board to another person? E.g. similar how you can transfer ownership of events on google calendar.

 

Thanks so much!

Hey Elise

If you're no longer needing the board, you can close it, or close/delete it.  If you want the board to still exist, you need to have a member added as an admin. Once there's another admin, you'll be able to leave the board.  Trello requires an admin of a board, which is why you're not able to leave it without another admin.

Adding another admin of the board will basically transfer the ownership of that board.

Hope that helps!

Hi Matthew,

 

Amazing - thanks for the swift response. That has worked indeed!

 

Many thanks!
