When I leave Harvard, what may happen to the content in my ArcGIS Online account?

When your Harvard ID expires, you won't be able to access your AGOL account anymore, but your content will remain. You can do the following:

  1. Transfer ownership of your content to your Harvard teammates before your Harvard ID expires (recommended, you can do it any time)
  2. Ask CGA staff to change content ownership for you after your Harvard ID expired (fill out the form on https://gis.harvard.edu/contactus)
  3. When you settle in your new organization and activate your new AGOL account there, ask CGA staff to change content ownership to your new account outside of Harvard (fill out the same form as above). This assumes that your new organization also has an organizational account of AGOL. Personal free AGOL accounts can't received contents from organizational AGOL accounts.
  4. Abandon the content to let CGA staff purge them after a few years.
