If file owner has no editing rights, transfer ownership automatically

We use Organization plan. At every quarterly checkup, we clean up new editors for Figma and FigJam to not get billed additionally. In the meantime, new editors usually create their Figma or FigJam files and when they are downgraded to viewer-restricted, file is not accessible to anybody except the owner.

As a result:

  • need to contact owner for everyone to get access to the file (even admins have no access)
  • need to give owner editing rights temporarily, so that the file is accessible and they can transfer ownership

I think file ownership should be automatically transferred to the next available editor on the list of file members, that would save us a lot of time and effort. If there is no editor on the list, at least admins should be able to access such files.
