Assigning the co-organizer role to Microsoft Teams meetings
Planning meetings for others? Do you want to give someone else control of the meeting?
Set up co-organizers to manage the meeting and lobby, even if you cannot attend.
- Schedule your meeting as usual. Make sure you have invited at least your proposed co-organizer (must be within the organization) and any presenters.
- Go to Meeting Options
- Search for the co-organizer setting and click the continuation selector arrow to select the co-organizer.
- Save your meeting options.
A co-organizer will have access to the meeting options and a limited number of rights/opportunities of the organizer in the meeting (i.e., not the same rights).
