Transfer ownership of a Team to a guest/external member

I'd like to start a team with external organisations. If I set up a Team the external members of my team will become guests. To make this Team sustainable, I'd like to know if my ownership will be transferable to a guest. I know it is possible to transfer ownership to members of the same organisation, but in this case all members will be from external organisations.

    Hi,

    As far as I know it's not possible to give/change ownership to person outside the organisation, you can view what's possible here:

    Best regards,
    Leon

    Hi lcschroten-4389,

    Agree with Leon, guest cannot have the ownership of a team.

    You can refer to the following table, which compares the Teams functionality available for an organization’s team members and its guests.
