Transfer existing data to new account

Hello,

Is there a way to transfer a project and its collected data to a new account, or change the email attached to an account? One of our projects is hosted in an account of a person who will not be working at the institution for the entirety of the project, and we need to transfer that data to a new, evergreen account.

Thanks,

Sarah

No way to transfer to a different account, but one of the existing account's administrators can add one or more new administrators to the account and the person who is leaving can be removed from the account when they leave. Administrators have access to all projects and data under a given account.

Adding: We've just (finally) released a new feature that allows transferiing ownership of an existing online experiment from one user to another user under the same account. This can be done by clicking on the small edit icon in the "Owner" column,



selecting the new intended owner (another member of the given account), and then clicking the "Save" icon:



This will transfer the access permissions for the experiment / its settings, the associated data folders and participant logs to the new owner.

I.e., if the manager for a project leaves, s/he can now transfer the access to everything associated with the project to another account member.
