It would be great if there was an option to tranfer ownership of created reports and dashboards. This way, work would not have to be duplicated if the original creator was to leave the company/change roles/etc.

We are looking into this but we do not have a proposed timeline for when this will release.

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

Ridiculous that this wasn't even in the first iteration of the product!!! Typical MS lack of usability in a nutshell!

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

I completely agree. Freelancers run into this issue all the time.

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

This really needs to happen. This should have been implemented from the release of the application.

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

Can you please update this with some progress as it would seem a relatively straight forward fix and this was 10 months ago

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

this needs to be fixed. Global Admins should have access to assign rights to these workplaces

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

Is there any update on this? Logging in as a terminated user is not something we can do. Transferring ownership or at least granting permissions is a requirement for us. It would be great if we could have an update on progress.

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

Madness that users are faced with recreating content when someone leaves. Big black mark against Power BI.

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

This is definitely needed. There is no reason an administrator should not be able to manage all aspects of PowerBI!

RE: Transfer of ownership of created dashboards

This is needed. I created a dashboard and published it. Now that it's established, I would give it to my technical team lead and let him maintain it - but I can't.

As the owner, I can give him read/share access - I should be able to give him write access as well.
