Notes:

  • Regardless of which method you use to change the author, be sure that the new author has authoring permissions in the folder that contains the presentation, or move the presentation to a folder in which they have authoring permissions.
  • If you are a Folder Administrator:
    • You can only change the author of presentations that are housed in the folder(s) that you have administrative rights to.
    • You can only change the author by following the steps from Administration.
