Change owner of meeting when user has left

Occasional Contributor

Hi!

 

Is it possible to change the owner of a series of regular Teams meetings when the owner has already left the company so that they can be allowed to edit time etc.?

 

Thanks!

Hello, not out of the box. At least not yet, but soon there will be a welcomed feature for these scenarios in which I hope it can be resolved from the user perspective.

So for now you need to reach out the IT admin who can add permissions on the said users mailbox (if it's still there) and remove them so another organizer can reschedule.

 

Let me also add that the same procedure can be used if it's a group mailbox involved.

Yet another BASIC feature that we've been waiting on for at least 2 years. When is Microsoft going to get its act together? We have the same issue with an employee that left. As GA, I can get full access to his mailbox, but I still don't have the ability to edit the owner. C'mon, folks. Let's start making this easier for admins to do our jobs.

Ha, good joke.
