What is an Account Owner? How do I change the Account Owner in my Harvest account?

This article is for Administrators. Learn more about permissions.
If you’re a Regular User, check out our Regular User resources.

The Account Owner is the person who signed up for your Harvest account. They are the only person who can cancel your Harvest account or make someone else the Account Owner.

If you’re unsure which person may be the Account Owner, an Administrator can check in the Team section and locate the Owner flag next to the team member’s name. Administrators can also see the Account Owner identified in the Settings section under Preferences.

To change the Account Owner, have the current Account Owner:

  1. Click on Settings (upper right corner).

    • Only Administrators can view and change Account Settings.
  2. Click Edit Preferences.

  3. Assign the new Account Owner from the dropdown menu. Note: Only an Administrator can be the Account Owner.

  4. Scroll down and Save Preferences.
