Teams – You can now define co-organizer when scheduling Teams meeting

Microsoft Teams has been there for quite sometime now but there was some sort of important capability missing for meeting; being allowed to define co-organizer.

Well, good news, you can now define co-organizers (up to 10) when setting up your Teams meeting.

The option to define co-organizers is available from the meeting options page, which can be accessed directly from Outlook client

Co-organizers will have more or less the same capabilities and permissions than the main organizer.

An invitee can be set as co-organizer only if he is member of the same tenant than the main organizer.

Co-organizers can do the following:

  • Access and change meeting options
  • Bypass the lobby
  • Admit people from the lobby during a meeting
  • Lock the meeting
  • Present content
  • Change another participant’s meeting role
  • End the meeting for all

Co-organizers cannot do the following:

  • Create & manage breakout rooms
  • View & download attendance reports
  • Manage the meeting recording
  • Edit the meeting invitation
  • Remove or change the Organizer role

In addition the option Who can present? has been updated to also reflect this new capability
