Transferring file ownership

If you are leaving Goshen College or are just wanting to give someone responsibility for a file so you can delete it off your Google Drive, then transfer the ownership to them.

  • Open Google Chrome
  • Sign into your Goshen Google Apps account
  • Press the customize button to access your google Drive
  • Select all files and folders you wish to  (you must not select any files you are not the owner of)
  • Click on more
  • Select share
  • Type in other person's email address
  • Click send
  • Share window will reappear, to the left of the personal email address where it says, "can edit" click dropdown menu and select Owner

  • Click save

Unfortunately if you try to share from a @goshen.edu to a @gmail.com address you will get this error. Please contact the helpdesk @ 535-7700 if you wish to do this.
