Hello @mth14 ,

Droplets cannot be directly transferred across Teams or Accounts. You can take a Snapshot of the Droplet, which can be transferred between Teams. This can be done via your DigitalOcean Cloud Control Panel. Here is a list of steps you’d need to take to accomplish the transfer:

  1. Navigate to the Images page ( on the control panel, and locate the Snapshot you would like to transfer.
  2. Select the icon called More -> Change owner, choose a team to move it to.
  3. Click the Transfer Snapshot button. When a member of the team logs in, they will see a notification on their Images page ( that they have a Pending Snapshot Transfer Request.

From there, either an Owner or Member of the team can either accept or deny the transfer. You can read more on this here:

Hope this helps!

Is this still not possible in 2023?

Is there still no way to directly change ownership of a project? We wouldn’t have created a team in the first place if it had been clear that team members would not have access to the projects owned by the primary account.
