In the case of G Suite domains, we recommend centralizing all your views under a single G Suite account for easier management. If you have created a view with a gmail.com account but are using it inside the intranet of a G Suite domain, it would also be better to transfer ownership to an account on the domain.
Independent contractors (freelancers) can also use this feature to transfer the view-ownership to their client at the end of the project.
In this article, we will guide you through the steps needed to successfully transfer the ownership of your view.
1 - Add the future owner as an editor to your view
Initially, when you create a view, you are the owner of that view. By default, you cannot immediately assign another owner. You need to invite them to be an editor first and then transfer the ownership.
1. The first step is to share the view edit link to the future owner.
2. Inform, the future owner to open the edit link and click on the 'Request Edit Access' button under the share menu.

2 - Transfer your view's ownershipNow the future owner is an editor, you can proceed to delegate them as the owner.
2. Select "Owner" for the profile you want to transfer the ownership and click on "Save Changes".
3 - What about my data source?
Once your view is transferred to the new owner, you still remain the owner of the data source since you are the one who created the Google Sheets data source of the transferred Awesome Table view.
- Request from you to have edit access to the datasource so they can make changes as needed
- Ask you to transfer the ownership of the datasource to them if you have the same domain
So, we recommend that the new owner of the view makes a copy of the Google Sheets data source and use this copy as the new data source.
