There are plenty of reasons why people may want to transfer ownership in Google Docs. If you are the owner, you might want to pass along responsibility of a project to someone else in your organization. If you’re a Google Apps Admin, you probably want to have a process in place when employees leave the company.
On the end user side, transferring ownership of files in Google Drive is really easy and it only takes a few steps. It’s important to keep in mind that you can only transfer ownership to someone else inside your organization, not a Gmail or another Google Apps account.
On the administrative side, you need to have a process in place for transferring files when an employee leaves your organization. Using a third-party tool like BetterCloud will allow you to transfer files in bulk, making sure all files are accounted for.
