How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Team owners should have full control of meetings within a team

We have a team meeting that was created with the following steps:

1. User A created team, invited other users to team
2. User B was added as team owner alongside A
3. A creates a recurring meeting
4. A leaves the organization, account disabled
5. B does not have any control of meeting created by A, so creates a new meeting for control
6. Meeting created by A continues to exist on calendars, as it cannot be cancelled or edited by anyone

Team owners should have full scheduling ability for team meetings to avoid this issue. People who initially created the meeting should be able to edit them as well, but the team owner must have full control.

        Not sure how this wasn't thought of, but having everyone able to mute or remove a participant can get abused in meetings very easily. In addition we need the ability to promote people to hosts.

        If the meeting is scheduled from within Teams and a team/channel was selected, the team is the owner and any member of the team can cancel the meeting from the team calendar.

        1) Open the team calendar in Outlook via the calendar view, All Group Calendars, check the calendar of interest.
        2. Operate on the team instance of the meeting to edit, cancel, whatever you want.
