Restrict users from changing ownership

Knowledge Article Number 000004462
Description

How can I restrict users from changing the ownership of a record on professional edition or below?

Resolution

If an administrator wants to restrict his users from changing the ownership of a record they can use a
validation rule on this object.

The rule would be $User.Id != "00520000001GfwQ" && ISCHANGED( OwnerId )


The ID stands for the user that is able to change the ownership. To get this ID, go to the user profile and copy the ID from the URL address bar of the browser. This person is then the only one in the company who got the permission to change the ownership of this record.
