I have a coworker out of the office this week and I'm taking over her meetings. 

 

As she created the meetings I cannot - cancel them, email participants directly from the meeting, add relevant documents. 

 

Can a co-host feature be created? Or  a transfer of ownership?

 

It would not only help when people are out of the office but administrative roles.

 

Thanks

Hi and Happy Monday to you.  

Outlook has calendar sharing capabilities. Before taking time away from the office, the calendar owner can share a calendar with editing access to a designated person and can easily remove the access on return.  
Since you didn't mention which Outlook product you are using, I provided instructions for Outlook for the web and Outlook Exchange. 


Outlook for the web:

  • Select Outlook Settings from the top menu then View All Outlook Settings.
  • Click on Calendar and Shared Calendar
  • @Select a calandar, select the proper you want to share
  • The Sharing and permission screen appears, enter the co-host's name and select Can Edit permission level

For Outlook Exchange, 

  • Click on File from the top menu and Options
  • Click on the Calendar Tab and scroll to Calendar Options
  • Click on Free/Business Options

  • Click on the Permission tab, then the Add button to enter the co-host's name
  • Complete the access levels

I hope this helps. 
Have a great day!

@Teresa_Cyrus Is it not possible to make someone else a co-host or co-owner for a single series ? 
In my case I do not want the co-host be able to see other meetings on my calendar - just the one that I am delegating. Is this achievable ? If yes, how ?

@kirankolli82 At this time, Microsoft Outlook does not offer a co-host or shared ownership on single calendar items.  It is a top request by many users including me.  :)
