MS Teams Meeting Delegation
For a meeting scheduled using Teams, it would be great to be able to delegate the organizer role so that someone else can reschedule the meeting during my absence. For instance for Executive Assistants or PTO.
Thank you for your continued feedback as this request remains on the team backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

A really useful feature! We miss it every day.

Guilds around the globe really needs this feature
Tien Nguyen Duc commented
I welcome this feature. Professor's assistants need it so much.
Fully agree that it would be important to be more flexible changing the organizer in Scheduled Team Calls. Especially on recurring calls this would be very beneficial.
We also need the function two or more organizers in the meetings
Peter McDermott commented
This--AND--delegation or expanded access of attendance reports would be very helpful.
Hi Alex it will be really great because many times, for PC issues, I have to forward to another email on another PC and I'm guest. I can't delegate myself.
This is really bad and urges changes! Especially for this moment in time with smart working.
And to see that the post date 24 April 2018 and you reacted on July 2022 (1 year later) and that in June 2021 nothing is done ... it's really an alarming worrying
Any update Alex? This is causing our organisation to have to continue using Zoom - which is not our preference

This is a huge point of failure for the program so I really hope the Nov rollout happens.
According to the Roadmap, this is due to be rolled out in November :)
Microsoft Teams: Co-organizer Meeting Role
Organizers will now be able to share control by assigning the new "Co-organizer" role to people they invite. Co-organizers will have almost all of the capabilities of the organizer, including management of Meeting Options.

Most meetings need a backup organizer - it's crazy this is not available!
Agree this would be most helpful and efficient. Keep working on it please.
This would be useful to have especially when there is a large meeting and you want to have breakout rooms assigned manually. You could have someone creating the breakout rooms that is not hosting the meeting.

Is there any update on the request? Users are getting very impatient waiting for the ability to have multiple meeting organizers especially when using Breakout Rooms.
This feature would make transitioning into, or out of, of teams and roles much easier!
For example, when a new scrum master joins a team it would be so much easier to transfer ownership of reoccurring meetings rather than having to create new meetings, re-inviting everyone, cancelling the previous meetings and losing all of that previous chat history.
This is a real problem - as a Talent Director, I need to have my Talent Coordinator create meetings and handle logistics - and then facilitators to run the meetings and events including Breakouts. This is so limiting that we are likely to move away from Teams to find a different solution.
Really short sited to not have this implemented by now - especially as this idea was on this thread since 2018 and we are now in 2021...and it has 7500 votes... surely that says something
This would be SO HELPFUL and would really increase our MS Teams adoption for groups.
We have the Academic Teams licencing and still find it very disappointing that even when you can configure a Class to have multiple "teachers" (Owners) that only the organiser of a scheduled Team Meeting for the class has access to Breakout room functionality.
Surely if an MS Teams Class is set with multiple "Owners" any one of those owners should be able to access and administrate full functionality as the session/team owner...?
This is an issue for us as users because we centrally administrate and schedule the sessions for our Trainers which in turn limits the basic functionality of Teams for Trainers when they need to host.
This is something that we would really like to see as a native functionality in Teams - bump it up the backlog! :-)
Here it is with a status 'Planned'.
What is the difference?
