Becoming content owner

You can take ownership of files and folders from other users.

You may need to do this if someone who owned a file or folder has left your company and you need to take responsibility for it.

Note: You need to be a Site Manager or have permission to delete a file or folder to become its owner, see User roles and permissions.
  1. Click on a file to open the file preview.

    Tip: If you're taking ownership of a folder you need to hover over it then select View Details.
  2. Click Become Owner and select OK.

    You now have full ownership rights of the file / folder.
