Is there any way to view which account is the owner of an organization?

Hi User. Anyone listed as an Administrator at
<https://www.sanity.io/organizations/><ORG_ID>/members
would be the closest thing to an owner for an organization.

Thanks. It seems that an organization doesn't really have an owner? If I, as the organization owner, have a project that I’ve removed myself from, it seems I don’t have permission to do much of anything. Not even deleting the project.
Still the project might still be getting billed to my organization, which I am pretty powerless to do anything about. I understand that this probably is connected to enforcing the number of seats on a project, but it seems like a bit of an oversight to be honest

From a technical perspective, that’s true, though only a fellow organization administrator can remove you (who we can assume is in that role because they’re trusted) and you can’t remove yourself if you’re the sole admin.
From a practical perspective, we’re here to help should you ever encounter a problem.

All that said, I can’t find any sort of feature request for an org owner, so please feel welcome to add one. It may be something for us to consider down the road.

Thanks for the detailed response. We managed to find a solution, and I always felt secure in that you'd be able to help us out if not. I was just a little surprised that I wasn't able to sort it out as the org owner while the project admin was on vacation.

Ahh, perhaps I misunderstood you originally. There is somewhat of a disconnect between how we implement the role of organization administrator and the common conception of an administrator as someone who oversees all projects. The fact that an org admin has little control over a project can be very puzzling. I’ll add your +1 to this issue internally. Thanks for the feedback, User!

Great, thanks! Feature request is up ☺️
