        Allow an administrator the ability to reassign a meeting organizer. This would help in many situations like if a organizer leaves the compnay or is out sick or is moved to another project but the meeting still needs to happen. You really don't want to bother your clients with having to reaccept the same meeting again.

        allow anyone who is invited to the meeting to change date, time, location, etc. and be able to notice the all who are invited to the meeting

        Lors de réunion créées en série, mais dont l'organisateur s'absente plus mois (par exemple) ou quitte la société, il serait pratique de reprendre la main dessus et de mettre un transfert "d'organisateur" afin d'éviter de saisir de nouveau les différents critère des réunions.

        SO important!! There are so many forums on the internet with people ranting about this lack of functionality. I really hope Microsoft resolve this issue.

        I'd like a feature where you can change the owner of the meeting, without having to delete the meeting and create a whole new meeting with a new owner.

        Hello - Google got this right years ago...this is why offices move to their platform - better features. Outlook has not kept up!

        Allow the owner of a meeting (single or series) to transfer ownership of that meeting to someone on the invite list. Real example: My co-worker is going on maternity leave, she is owner of all of our cross group meetings. In order for me to be able to cancel a meeting is if I own it. Today we have to cancel and reschedule in coordinated unison (to keep the conf room). It the owner was able to simply transfer ownership it would not be so painful.

        If I am the owner of a meeting and I drop off the project or am not in the office that day, then I should be able to reassign the meeting to someone else so they don't have to resend the meeting invite.

        google offers this option through its admin portal to transfer ownership of meetings for empolyees that have left. I would really like to see this option in exchange.

        This is needed and is logical especially when people leave the company and have existing meetings upcoming. Makes sense to clean up the mess when someone leaves.

      • Kelly Wallace commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreed! This especially would help when an organizer no longer works at the company or has changed position. It would keep us from having to cancel and then recreate the meeting to have control of the updates.

        So if you leave - your team can take over ownership of existing future booked meetings and be able to edit them
