Documents Ownership
When authenticated users with proper security permissions imports or creates a document in Docsvault they become the owner of the documents they create. In other words, they have "Full Control" rights on the document. However, Administrator can adjust the security permissions of their documents.


At times, it may be desired that the ownership of such documents stay with a higher level user like a manager of an administrator. The only way to prevent a document owner from accessing or controlling their documents is for another user to take ownership of the document. Using this ownership override feature you can specify a user who will own all documents created by this user.
