move existing user to new account: email address is already in use

Hello,

For a while I had user created in Management console and recentry deleted.
Issue is that we have two diferent corporate accounts for TeamViewer and in fact I need to move one user from one account to other.
Potentially I could delete user from old account and recreate on new one, however I cant create new user based on same email, error: This e-mail address is already in use

How to permanently delete user from account?

thank you


I supose that this user does exists

Hello @MindaugasM,

Thank you for your post. 

You can show inactive users by selecting the option in the tools menu drop-down under User Management.

Re: move existing user to new account: email address is already in use

Hello @MindaugasM,

Thank you for your post.

When you remove a user from your Company Profile, it does not delete the account; it simply reverts it to a free account. The account itself remains active, but is no longer licensed. A TeamViewer account can only be fully deleted when a) the account does not belong to any Company Profile and b) the account is logged in to the Management Console (as the delete option can only be seen by the account itself)2018-10-16 09_53_12-TeamViewer Management Console.png

Therefore, if you attempt to recreate the user under a new Company Profile, it will inform you that the account already exists. In this situation, the best option is to use the 'Add Existing Account' option found in the User Management section of the Management Console.2018-10-16 10_02_17-TeamViewer Management Console.png

Simply go to https://login.teamviewer.com/cmd/joincompany and log in with the account you wish to move to the new Company Profile.

Once logged in, you will be prompted to provide a Company Admin's email address.2018-10-16 09_57_47-TeamViewer Management Console.png

Once submitted, you will see the account request on the new Company Profile!
