How do I change the owner of a contact?

If you're an Account Admin, you can change the owner of a contact. This can be done to multiple contacts at once, or to a single contact.

Changing the owner of a single contact:

1. Open the contact card of the contact you want to reassign and click Edit.

Assigning multiple contacts to a new owner:

On the contact page, click the check box next to the contacts you wish to reassign. The checkbox appears when you hover your mouse over a contact. Then at the top of the page, select Reassign Owner.
