Change ownership of calendar event in Outlook 2016
Sometimes the owner of a meeting (or, more often, meeting series) is on vacation or changes jobs; it would be nice if they could assign ownership of an instance (for vacation) or the full series (for job changes) to someone else. Also provide an option to create a meeting on someone's behalf without being included in the meeting.
A feature where a Meeting series owner can give Access to another colleague to manage this one Meeting series. The Meeting owner does not want to share/let manage his whole calender with another colleague, but just this one Meeting series.

Allow for the meeting organizer to be changed so that meeting rights and setttings could be transfered to someone else to manage. This is particularly helpful for recurring meetings and appointments.

I just want to change the owner from one of my email accounts to another (since a corporate email is going away) without having to re-do almost 14 years' worth of meetings... PLEASE add this feature!
this is a critical missing feature - things change, and the calendar should be responsive.

Really important for an organization to delegate meeting ownership for Vacantion or if someone leave..
Ian Caldwell commented
*bump* +1 - multiple meeting owners, or simply changing the meeting organizer - both are important features

Anyone have a time frame for this to be looked at?
I thought Microsoft would respond after 1000 votes
Very important feature - A lot of work every time someone changes position and especially if they leave the business.
I can't believe this can't be done ! This is needed !
This would be very useful, this happens all the time.
No brainer and need it all the time!

This seems like a rudimentary function that should be available. PLease cab we have this :)
This is an important feature currently causing a lot of distress in a normal business day. What is needed is actually that the outlook experience need to be extended from only a personal view to a more team/organisational approach, in which this suggestion would be central.
There should be a possibility to create an appointment and send it via mail to another user like an meeting but without add the appointment to your own calender.
This would be very helpful, especially in our business company.
Cambio de Organizador de reunion
Meeting Organizer Change
En los calendarios compartidos debería de poner como organizador de la reunion el usuario que crea la cita no solamente el titular del calendario
In the shared calendars, the user who creates the appointment should not be the organizer of the meeting, not just the owner of the calendar
Transférer une salle de réunion à une autre personne
Transfer a meeting room to another person
Il arrive que l’on souhaite transférer une salle de réunion préalablement réservée à une autre personne au lieu de la libérer pour qu’elle puisse la récupérer
Sometimes you want to transfer a meeting room previously reserved to another person instead of releasing it so that it can retrieve it

Changing ownership of meetings is a highly needed feature! Here's my current example that you can use as a use case in a future user story:
I'm going on maternity leave in a month, and I will be out for 12 weeks. I need to transfer ownership of the meetings that I run during those 12 weeks to my manager. That way if he needs to reschedule or edit the meeting, he can. When I get back, I want to quickly and seamlessly be able to take back over those meetings.
The current alternative forces me to have to inconvenience my attendees and clog their inboxes with a bunch of canceled instances of meetings and then updated invites. I hate the idea of having to flood inboxes. We all get enough emails.
Also, the current process is very time consuming for both me and my manager.
Looking forward to seeing this in a future release!
There is critical mass noting this pain point, so please address this issue.
Please add this feature. It is very much needed in our workplace and will save us lots of time.
