Transfer Ownership of sheets

I know that a user can take the ownership of several sheets one at a time, but is there a function where I can transfer ownership for specific sheets to a user?? Or that the user request a few or several sheets in one request?

If not, I think that it will be a good idea to develop this feature. As an admin of the account, I've created several sheets for Managers and will be kind of time consuming for them to request ownership for each sheet, and the current owner be able to approve or reject which sheet to transfer ownership.

    Hello Evalena,

    Thanks for reaching out!  You would be able to offer ownership to other people if you're the owner of the sheet.  Here's some further information on that.

    You'll want to make sure those users are Admins on the sheet (even if the sheet is in a Workspace, you'll want to share them on the sheet as Admins, which seems redundant but it will allow you to give these users ownership)!

    Kind regards,
