To hand study ownership to another user, you should first update the user rights to ensure their access level is equivalent to the study admin. Normally this requires granting all the Management rights.
Once all user rights have been updated, you can edit the 'main contact' information in the Settings tab.
If you no longer intend to participate in the study, you can remove all your user rights and ask the new study admin to remove you from the users list or just simply delete yourself from the study.
The study creator will always have more rights to differentiate them. For example, study creator will have 6 rights, and if they transfer the rights to another study team member, the new study admin will only have 4 rights which is sufficient to fully manage the study.
