Transfer documents between your account and organization

To transfer documents from your individual DocHub account to one of your organizations or vice versa, you can simply change the Owner of the document. Here's how:

  1. From the document's right-click menu on your DocHub dashboard, or from the menu while viewing the document in DocHub, select Share or Send Dochub_UI_-_Share_or_Send_button.png
  2. Click Edit on the right of the section for Who Has Access.

 3. Click on the Owner drop-down menu and select an organization or user.

If you don't see the organization in the Owner menu, you either aren't a member of the organization, or your role is set to Agent (only Content Managers, Owners, and Admins can do this transfer). 


You can do the same for Sign Request documents that are In Progress or Finalized. For instance, if you'd like a Sign Request to appear as being sent from your organization, open the document and follow the same instructions in the Share with others window. This action will also move the document from the Sent section of your DocHub Dashboard to the Sent section of your organization.


If you don't need to give access to your entire organization, you can also share your document on an individual basis. That can be done using the same Share dialog by entering the person's email address in the field at the bottom of the window and clicking on Add.

If you've been uploading to your account and then keep having to transfer to the organization, you can skip the 2nd step by uploading it straight to your organization. See: Uploading documents directly to your organization instead of your individual account
