I want to be the record owner, not my admin?

Q:  I just noticed that contacts which have been entered by my admin show up as being "owned" by her. That appears to mean they do not sync to my google contacts, and so they don't show up in the phone book on my Iphone. That's a problem for me. Any suggestions/thoughts?

A: If you have an admin who enters contacts for you and you want to be the record owner, go to Settings, Users and Permissions and change the "Change Record Owner" to yourself. Then any contacts that admin enters or imports will be yours.

Q: Is there a way to quickly fix all the contacts that were assigned to me before I switched the setting?

A: Unfortunately we can not mass change record owners yet. You would need to Undo the import and re-import it in the correct Users account to have them named as Record Owner.

Q: Is there a way to find all the contacts that I own so I can change them manually?

A: Yes - On the Dashboard, click on Contacts, then there is a Filter by Record Owner.
