Trello - How to change the administrator of a board ?

One of my coworkers created a board and I'm a member of it. Now she has left the company and I would like to become the administrator. How can I do it ? Is it possible ?

Hello @laure ancelin,

Have you read this page: Changing the admins of a team or board? The "If you're not able to change admins after the previous admin leaves" section should be helpful if you can't contact the previous admin.

Hope this helps!

Hello @laure ancelin


the admin account is the only one able to add/remove other administrators for a board. If that person has left the company, your only way to recover the board is to send an email to and explain the situation, as there is no other way for you to change Administrator.


Let me know if this helps,
