Transferring data to another user

Last Updated:

Before deleting a user, you can transfer all of their scheduled meetings, webinars, and cloud recording files to another user. You can only designate one user to transfer the data to.

Note: Scheduling privilege can be also be used to transfer meetings and webinars between licensed users on the same account, without the need to delete a user. If you need further assistance in transferring meetings, webinars, or cloud recordings, please contact Support

Prerequisites for transferring meetings, webinars, or cloud recordings

  • Account owner access if the user being deleted is an admin
  • Account owner or admin access if the user being deleted is a member
  • Both users on the same account
  • A new, Licensed user to transfer cloud recordings
  • A new, Licensed user with the Webinar add-on for transferring webinars
