Hello, 

 

I am trying to find out if there is a way to edit other users posts. With the current situation that we all face if a user is unavailable but they are an owner of a page no other member of the Teams channel can edit the post to keep it updated. Also, this type of functionality would be useful for when users move roles as the information can be kept updated. I've tried to find the answer on the web but I've not been very successful. I would say that if it was an offer in Teams that Owners should be given the function. Also if it's not a function available, is there a way to feed it into Microsoft as it would really be beneficial.

Hi!

No, owners can only delete messages if this feature is enabled!

Please post a request for this in Teams uservoice or find and vote for an existing one:
