Is there a way to change the owner of a dashboard? Or can we have more than one owner of a dashboard?

There can only be one owner of a board. The sharing settings in Kanbanchi are provided by Google Drive and it does not allow more than one owner.

Within G Suite domain, G Suite Admin can move ownership of all files, including Kanbanchi boards, to other members of the organisation.

The board owner can transfer ownership to another user by clicking Share in the app or within Google Drive.

Note: ownership can only be transferred to another user in the same domain as the current owner.

Click Share button in the app.

The “Share with others” window appears.

Click Advanced in the lower right corner of the window. Start entering the new owner’s email in the Invite people line.

Choose the email. The user will appear in the list of those who have access to the board. Click the pencil mark.

Choose Is owner in the pop-up window.

Click Save changes blue button in the lower left corner of the window.

Confirm the transferring clicking Yes in the “Are you sure?” window.

In order to transfer ownership within Google Drive find the folder containing the board file. Click on it with the right mouse button. Choose Share in the pop-up window. Repeat the actions that are described above.

We advise waiting a couple of minutes (up to 10) to make sure the transfer is completed. You may also check if the transfer has been completed by visiting the board. Open its Board setting panel. The new owner’s name should appear in Board details.

Personal users (gmail.com) cannot pass ownership of the board to other users (unlike with Docs and Sheets). A quick workaround would be to share the board with a colleague, who you want to see as the owner. Then she must сopy your dashboard into her Google Drive, thus becoming the owner of this copied board. All settings will be copied, excluding comments, sharing settings, notifications and dates in Google Calendar. Permissions of attached files also must be checked, because original files belong to you and are placed in your Google Drive.
