Change Element Ownership

When in Edit mode, the user sees all work in progress even if they are not the owner of the content. In Edit mode or Author mode, if you try to edit content owned by another user, an error dialog appears.

If the current owner’s profile includes an email address, click the hyperlinked address to send them an email message. To immediately take ownership of the item, click the Change Ownership to open the Change Element Ownership dialog.

Select a user from the list and, if desired, enter a message that will be emailed to the current owner.
