Want to Switch Admin accounts and link old admin as a personal account

Want to Switch Admin accounts and link old admin as a personal account

New member | Level 2

We are looking to do switch admin accounts within our company drives and use the current admin account as a linked personal drive, how do we achieve this without deleting any of our files or current attached accounts. We have paid for the upgraded company server with the new account and it is pertinent that we do not lose any documents... Please HELP!

Hey there @lemoncitystudio - how are you today?

If you'd like to make another member of your team an admin, please follow these steps:

1) Log in to https:confused face:/www.dropbox.com/team/admin with your Team Admin's account.
2) Click the gear to the right of the member you'd like to add as an admin and select "Add admin permissions" from the menu. 

Let me know if this helped!
