If you've used Google Docs before, this will feel familiar. Before you change ownership, make sure you invite the new owner to your Coda doc as an editor, and make sure they're listed as a Doc Maker in your workspace. Note that the new owner will need to share your domain for this to work if your workspace is connected to Google Drive (if not, there is a workaround listed below).

If your doc is linked with Google Drive, you'll need to follow the instructions listed below under "Google Drive linked doc".

Coda doc

Click "Share" on your doc (either from within the doc or from the doc list), find the user you would like to make the new owner and change "Can Edit" to "Is Owner".  That's it!


Google Drive linked doc

Go to Google Drive and right click on the document and select Share. Then click Advanced in the bottom right corner. Lastly, click the dropdown arrow next to the person who you'd like to be the new owner, and change his or her role to owner. Don't forget to save the changes!

Note: Google Drive currently doesn't support changing across domains. So if you want to give ownership of a doc to someone outside of your domain, follow these steps:

  1. Share the doc with the person you're giving ownership to
  2. Have the new owner create a copy of the doc, and then reshare that copy with the rest of the team.

We know transferring across domains or all docs to a new account isn't the easiest process at this time. We're working on making this workflow easier.
