Transfer primary ownership of your team

The Primary Owner has the highest level of permissions on a Slack team. They have the ability to promote other team members to Owner or Admin roles, and can also delete the team.

Ownership transfers

  1. Visit the Team Ownership page:
  2. Choose a team member to become the new Primary Owner.
  3. Enter your Slack password to verify the transfer.
  4. Click Transfer Team Ownership.

Use caution: Once you transfer team ownership to another person, the change is immediate and you will not be able to undo the action (but they can transfer it back to you).
