About maintaining ownership continuity for your organization
Projects maintained and managed by one sole organization owner can easily become inaccessible if the organization owner is unreachable. We recommend an organization have at least two people with owner permissions to ensure no one will lose access to a project.
Organization owners have full administrative access to the organization. For more information, see "Roles in an organization."
Note: As an organization owner, you can change the role of other organization members and owners. You can't change your own role.
