Please note:

It’s important that all changes to site ownership are reported via the IT Service Desk. This allows us to answer queries from staff about who owns their school/departmental site when required. To perform these actions you must be a SharePoint site owner.


Add a site owner

To add a new site owner you will first need to add them as a site member.

In the top right corner of the Departmental SharePoint site you will see an indicator of how many members the site has.

  1. Select ‘X members’ (where X represents the number of site members)
  2. Select the arrow underneath the member’s name.
  3. Select ‘Owner’ from the drop-down menu.

The change will be made immediately.


Remove a site owner

In the top-right corner of the Departmental SharePoint site you will see an indicator of how many members the site has.

  1. Select ‘X members’ (where X represents the number of site members)
  2. Select the arrow underneath the Site Owner’s name.
  3. Choose ‘Member’ or ‘Remove from group’

If you select ‘Member’ their access will be demoted to ‘Site Member’. If you select ‘Remove from group’ their access to the site will be removed.
