If you are using Microsoft Teams for different meetings, you’ll be glad to know that the company is currently working on the option to assign more than one organizer to meetings. Earlier last week, the company confirmed that the feature is currently in the works.
Microsoft Teams currently offers three roles for online classes and meetings. As you’d expect, the meeting organizer is the person who creates the meeting. Organizers can’t be changed and they’re responsible to determine who is a presenter or attendee.
Although the organizer has many capabilities such as the ability to share contents, invite others as well as start or stop the recoding, it can be problematic as more people have moved to remote working over last year due to pandemic.
As a result, Microsoft has decided to remove this restriction. The company noted, “Thank you for your feedback. The feature team is planning to add a co-organizer role for Teams meetings. We will share an update as soon as one is available.”
Following the release, organizers will be able to delegate organizer to another participant in their absence. However, as of now, it’s unclear when the new change will be available for users.
