Default Organization/Ownership

Hi, I think it would be great feature to have a setting to control what the default ownership or organization should be. This promotes sharing and centralization - otherwise the entry would be created in the user’s vault.

Definitely interested in this feature too… Any news on this one ?

The ability to set default organization for new items would greatly easy the adoption in family sharing scenarios.

My wife and I actually switched to a shared account because of this issue. It’s a single point of failure, but it makes it usable for non-technical users.

I wonder if different behaviour for different accounts is really what we want though? In a truly shared environment maybe users could be given the option to disable their own vault? Perhaps some businesses might want to do this by default so everything in here is shared, rather than risk passwords vanishing into the cloud when employees leave?

For our Enterprise organizations, there is a Personal Ownership policy that does require all items be saved to a Collection within the Organization.

We also have a policy captured to ‘default’ to Organization ownership on the backlog, too.

Cool, that’s a powerful incentive to upgrade! I think the default could still be preferable for most though as there are times you do want to keep things to yourself (your TOTP seeds for example).
