    The inability to have multiple owners oversee channel meetings, content, etc. is breaking a number of things in an educational settings. For example, we just had an education specialist leave and someone else take over her Team. All meetings created by her and locked, cannot be deleted, and there doesn't appear to be a way to reassign them. In addition, breakout rooms are completely tethered to the one person who created the meeting. If you are in a situation where you are tag teaching as a team and that person is away, you are out of luck.

    This is pretty dysfunctional and needs to be addressed asap if we are to take Teams seriously as a viable alternative to Zoom or Google Hangouts/Classroom in the educational space

    Agreed. In a classroom setting when trying to check for hands up as well as monitoring conversations this is critical. It is something that our teachers are clamoring for in moving from Zoom. It is up there with an expanded gallery view and the need for breakout rooms in terms of how many questions we're getting about this as schools try to deal with lockdowns. Please fix this.

    In our classroom settings, this is a request coming at us left and right from teachers. To prevent things like cyberbullying they want to restrict students' ability to chat one to another. Teachers would, however, also like to be able to initiate a one way private chat with the student. That ability is thrown out when the chat policy turns off chat capabilities for the student. They have to resort to texting, emailing separately, etc.

    Agreed that this is needed functionality if Teams is to compete in the K-12 education space.

    Same issue here and this is a big headache for teachers. This has been a bug in the desktop version that is longstanding. Please fix name resolution in private channels in the desktop version of Teams, as it is our only recourse in the absence of native breakout room functionality.

    I am also seeing this same issue. I took my Surface laptop home where I use a USB-C universal docking station with the external monitor set as primary, and giving control worked fine. In my office, however, with a Surface dock, I was training this morning where the external monitor is set as my main screen (same scenario), and I could not give control to attendees. The option is greyed out. We use Teams in a teaching context and this functionality is critical. Others are reporting this in answers.microsoft.com (dating back to about Sep 2019) but it is August 2020 and I'm still seeing this in the latest version of Teams.
