Team owners should have full control of meetings within a team
We have a team meeting that was created with the following steps:
- User A created team, invited other users to team
- User B was added as team owner alongside A
- A creates a recurring meeting
- A leaves the organization, account disabled
- B does not have any control of meeting created by A, so creates a new meeting for control
- 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.
We are currently experiencing an issue with Teams where a recurring meeting made by an employee who no longer works at our company for a channel has no organizer, so no one can change/cancel the meeting.
Please allow team admins to modify any meeting made for a channel in their team.
Agree, that would be excellent. At a minimum, the teams' owners or team members designated by the meeting organizer should be able to modify and update meetings.

Have an option (default?) when scheduling a meeting in teams for the calendar invite to be editable by anyone in the team that has appropriate permissions, not just the original owner.
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.

Team Owners should have access to cancel meetings sent to the Team by members.
