Project Ownership

How is Project Ownership Determined?

Project ownership is determined by the license that is applied to a project. The account which owns the license is considered the project owner.

Project ownership can be specified during project creation or can be switched after the project has been created.


Any user who has a Trimble Connect license assigned to them from your account will be able to create projects but these projects will still be owned by your account.

Setting Ownership During Project Creation

For new projects, there is an option in the creation dialog to choose the ownership by selecting an account from the dropdown.

To set the project ownership

  1. Sign in to Trimble Connect.

  2. On the projects page, click New.

  3. The project creation dialog will open.

  4. Choose the ownership by selecting an account from the dropdown (this will refine the list of licenses in the project license dropdown menu).

  5. Choose a license from the selected account that you would like to apply to the project.

Updating a Project's Billing Account

These instructions apply to users with multiple accounts.

If you need to switch the project ownership between your accounts, you can do so in Trimble Connect for Browser.

To update or change the project billing account

  1. Open the project in Trimble Connect for Browser.

  2. Go to the Settings › Project Details page.

  3. Click on the Project ownership field and select your account from the list.
    The Account ID will be listed when you open the dropdown menu.

  4. Select the correct license from the Project license dropdown.
    The project license dropdown will only show licenses from the selected account.

  5. Click Save changes (located in the top right section of the page).

Note: Changing project billing account will remove any existing file metadata being used on the project and will be replaced by the new account file metadata template (if the new account is using the feature).
