How to Quickly Transfer Ownership of Documents in Google Drive

When the end of school year arrives there will be teachers and administrators who leave one school to go to another. Especially at the administrative level this can lead to a lot of transferring of files from the outgoing person to his or her replacement. For those school districts using Google Apps for Education there is a quick way for the domain administrator(s) to transfer ownership of Google Drive files from one person to another.

To transfer ownership from one person to another a Google Apps for Education domain administrator just needs to sign into the domain management dashboard, select "settings," choose "Drive," and select "tools." Then the administrator simply has to enter the email addresses of the person the files are transferring from and the person the files are transferring to. A screenshot of the process is included below.
