Microsoft Teams is introducing a new co-organizer role for meetings. The role allows people to share the workload involved in managing complex meetings, like webinars. The role is optional and likely to be used in a small minority of Teams meetings. Even so, it’s a useful feature to have available when you’re planning a large and complex meeting.

Thanks for the link @ChristianJBergstrom - some Breakout Room functionality has updated since I last looked!

@ChristianJBergstrom is it possible to make a person out of the organisation to be a Co-Organizer?

No, I'm afraid not. To qualify for the co-organizer role, an invitee must be using an account that is on the same tenant as the organizer’s account.

@Paul_van_Rijn An online meeting has to have an owner. The owner could be the assistant who schedules the meeting on behalf of another person, who can then become a co-organizer. However, the organizer still owns the meeting and they can't transfer that responsibility to someone else. It's a different way of working - Teams is not Outlook and Outlook is not Teams.

@Tony Redmond It's not a problem that a meeting needs to have one owner. It's a problem that we can't assign permissions that are equal to the owner role to someone else. The owner can work part time, the owner can get sick or temporary unavailable. All valid scenario's for which you want to have a proper backup organizer.

@Malorie Clark We are not seeing it yet either and really need it. I see the rollout timeframe has been set to Feb 22 - is there any better info available yet?
