How to Change the Account Owner

Updated Oct 07, 2021

By default, ScreenSteps account owner is the only user who has access to billing information for an account. The account owner is able to grant access to billing for other users.

Are you the current account owner?

If you're not sure whether you are the current Account Owner, an easy way to check is to:

  1. Navigate to your ScreenSteps Admin area (in a web browser)
  2. Click Account (in the upper right-hand corner)
  3. Click the Profile link.

In the Edit Profile dialog that appears you will see your user role in the Account Settings tab. If it shows a key icon with the word Owner then you are the account owner.

Is the proposed Account Owner already an Admin in your ScreenSteps account?
