Move a Project and its Droplets to a different Team on the same Account?

I’d like to move an existing Project, with a few configured Droplets to another Team on my account. Is this possible?

I see where I can move an application to another Project on the same Team. That’s not it.

Hi there,

Although you can’t transfer a Droplet to another account directly, you can transfer a snapshot of a Droplet to another user, who can then recreate the Droplet from the snapshot.

To transfer a Droplet using snapshots:

  1. Take a snapshot of the Droplet.

  2. Once complete, transfer the snapshot to a new owner. The new owner must accept the transfer.

  3. The new owner can then recreate the Droplet from the snapshot.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
