Hi @Anonymous 

You need to take controle of the dataset and become the owner before updating the App. So basicaly you are going to need to Publish the dataset to your workspace and then publish a new App.

@aj1973 Taking owner does not require the dataset to be publsihed again, it can be done from setting section (Schedule Refresh) of dataset

@arvindsingh802 It can only be done if he logs in to John Doe's account. 

 

@Anonymous If you then are able to log in to his account then go to Workspace setting/Access and make yourself as admin of it. after that log in to your account and republish the workspace to the App. Your name will on the App.
