If I may kindly request that the capability be granted to managers and above in organizations to grant their Executive and Administrative Assistants delegate permissions in Microsoft Teams. The assistants need to set up the Teams meetings from the person's calendar they support. Without this functional capability, the assistants can only set these up from their own calendars. Thank you very much in advance for enabling this function in your program.
Outlook and Teams are both Microsoft products - why was this not included automatically! It is my job to filter and prioritize communication to our company president, and take care of whatever I can for him. Since Teams doesn't include the ability to delegate chats, I can't help him; people either interupt him with things that I can take care of for him (or can wait), or he has to ignore communication altogether, so something important may go unaddressed. PLEASE extend the delegate access to all Teams functions, the way you have with all Outlook functions!!!!!

This would be a fantastic feature as the current platform is creating many roadblocks for our executives and their assistants. I would also suggest this carry over into the breakout capabilities as a delegate of a calendar and or meeting.
I wonder what Microsoft executives and their assistants are doing as a work around.

I agree with Chris. Being able to assign a delegate is a much more secure way to manage shared lines for service desks and group numbers.

This is important for resource accounts, like a front-desk, or call group number. Allowing delegates to manage call settings for who is receiving calls and recording new voice messages is really important. However, sharing resource credentials isn't something we would normally do as a standard security practice.
This suggestion is very important and relevant for our organization. We have many assistants who are entirely managing the agenda of their Managers and at the moment it is not possible to organise and send meeting invitations on behalf of the Manager or even from a functional mail box.
