Transfer Account Ownership

The process for changing the Account Owner in Sprout only takes a few steps.

If you are the Account Owner and would like to transfer ownership to a current Sprout user on your account, you can do so by going to Settings > Users & Social Profiles. Select the new Account Owner and click Make Account Owner beneath their profile assignment.

Note: Following the steps above keeps all current work intact–tasks, queued and scheduled messages will send as normal.

If you are the Account Owner but the person to whom you would like to transfer this ownership is not a current Sprout user on your account, you can make this change by going to Settings > Personal and then editing your name and email to reflect information for this new user. The new Account Owner can then initiate a password reset by clicking “Forgot your password” from the login screen.
