Hey @sarahfrison thanks for getting back to me, much appreciated.
I just got a response from your support team around this process. I will post it below for any other Webflow users that might be searching for this information.
"Thank you for contacting us about the transfer, I’m happy to clarify!
As you noted, the individual and team accounts are separate and have separate dashboards to manage the projects too.
At this time that does mean cancelling the hosting on a site which needs transferring to a team, however if the domains on the current site are already connected, we can keep downtime to a minute or less when transferring to the team.
Here’s the process step-by-step:
Create the Team Plan
Duplicate the original site, so you have a backup, just in case!
Cancel hosting on the original site, and transfer the site over to your Team
Add a new hosting plan, and add the URLs to the project, then publish. If the domains were already connected, this should be almost instant, as the DNS doesn’t need to propagate like the first time you connected the domains.
Let us know the site name, and we can either provide account credit onto the team plan, or a refund for unused time on the old hosting plan.
Your site and all CMS items etc stays intact when hosting is cancelled. Technically all that happens is the pages and items are locked whilst without hosting, and then become editable once more when hosting is added again.
You will need to keep a record of 301 redirects, and also editors, as these do need re-adding when the site is in it’s new home.
We are making some big strides on more flexible collaboration features, as we know this kind of workflow is not a premium experience! So whilst this move involves some additional steps, future changes should become easier!
I hope this helps, but definitely let us know if you have any questions.
This feels like a lot overhead just to add another designer to help work on my company website. I am going to hold off on the Team Plan upgrade until a more seamless process comes along…fingers crossed here…
