When an employee changes job roles or leaves the organization, they often need to transfer ownership of documents to other specific users.  In Google for Business, the owner can add a new editor to their document and then promote that editor to Owner.  This allows the link to the document to remain the same, but the document now becomes owned by the new employee without affecting the link. 

 

Not having this capability is the highest level of frustration amongst our employees.
