Transferring Project to Another Owner

How can I transfer a project to another owner, permanently? Doesn't matter if it's by giving them my account or exporting and importing the prototype into their account, what's the best way to do this?

  • Unfortunately you cannot transfer a project between accounts. When you mean owner you mean another admin user within the same account? If yes then you can just simply add access to that user for that particular project. There is no user "owner" for a project, just people that have access rights to the project.

  • When I look at the "People" tab, I see 1 owner (me) and everyone else is a reviewer. How can I add someone as an admin? Does that second admin also need to have a paid proto.io account?

  • Only one user per account is an owner and the only difference between an owner and an admin is that the owner can access billing details. There are no project owners, just people that can edit the project and people that can review it (no edit access). You can simply go and add an admin user from the people menu and then give access to that user to the project that you want.

  • Thanks for the quick replies! I just have two more questions.

    In the Project Settings > People area, I see that I can add a new user whose role is Designer, but I can't figure out how to change a user from from Reviewer to Designer (I assume Designer is an admin?). So it seems I should delete a Reviewer and re-add them as a Designer?

    My original use case is this: I'm leaving my role at the company and therefore need to give this project to someone else entirely. Ideally I would transfer the project to their account so they could take over billing and continue to prototype with proto.io, add reviewers, etc. With the limits you describe, I'll have to allow them to take over my account so they can have control over billing. Is that the case?

  • Yes, a reviewer cannot be switched to an Admin. You'll have to delete the reviewer account and then add them as an editor (Admin or designer). Keep in mind that designers and admins both have editing rights to projects, but designers only have access to the projects an administrator assigns them to, and admins have more rights to edit projects and users.

    You are also correct in that you cannot switch the ownership of the account over to another user. You'll have to edit your own account details and change the personal info, email & password to those of the user you wish to hand over the account to.
