Change the Ownership of a Single Record

If you've created a record, Quickbase recognizes you as the record's owner. There may be times when you'd like to change ownership of a record. For example, say that you manage an application but are not a participant. You create a record but don't want to confuse the users of your application, some of whom may not know who you are. You can easily transfer record ownership to someone else:

Note: To perform this task, you must have administrative rights to the table containing the record.

To change the ownership of a record:
  1. Open a report that contains the records whose ownership you want to change.

  2. Click next to the record that you want to modify.

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Change next to the name of the current record owner.

    The Select a User page opens in a new window.

  4. Select the user that you want to make the new record owner, then click Done.

    The new owner name displays above the record's "Created Date."

  5. Click Save to implement the change.
