Maintaining ownership continuity for your organization
Organizations can have more than one organization owner to avoid lapses in ownership.
Organization owners can promote any member of an organization to an organization owner.
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 "Permission levels for an organization."
