You’ve worked hard to build a great group; you want to protect that investment, right? One way to ensure that your group and its members are protected is to assign a co-owner, or two.
Appointing a co-owner is not something you should take lightly, since an owner has access to member information, can change group settings, and can even delete a group. You may decide that just appointing moderators to help with administrative tasks is a better choice for your group. But in cases where you have the trust and fellowship of a moderator or a strong group member, opting to appoint the person co-owner of your group is a natural progression in the person’s relationship to the group. And should a situation arise where you can’t or don’t want to be responsible for your group anymore, the co-owner can easily assume full ownership of it.
To make another member the group co-owner:
- Go to the Members area of your group
- Click the Edit Membership link next to the member you want to promote.
- Click the Change to Owner link.
- Confirm your change by clicking the Make Owner button.
