Transfer primary ownership of your workspace

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

Ownership transfers

  1. Visit the Transfer Ownership page: my.slack.com/admin/transfer
  2. Choose a member to become the new Workspace Primary Owner.
  3. Enter your Slack password to verify the transfer.
  4. Click Transfer Workspace Ownership.

Use caution: Once you transfer workspace 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).

Who can use this feature?
  • Only the Workspace Primary Owner can access this feature.
  • Available on free and paid plans.
