Provide an option to forwarding meetings and transfer the ownership as well in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to forwarding meetings and transfer the ownership as well in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to other people to ensure everyone gets the complete list and receive the replies as well not only the meeting organizer. Also provide an option to show the Free or Busy status when forwarding a meeting as well as delegating it.

Office the ability to transfer ownership of a meeting to a delegated user with permissions.

This would be helpful in the event that the original organiser leaves the company or is no longer responsible for the meeting and can then pass responsibility to another person. I work for a large organisation and in order to gather multiple teams we need to book in regular and important meetings well in advance; usually for the year. this becomes problematic when the original organiser (secretary or PA) leaves or changes roles and is unable to reassign appointments to another employee to manage.
enable options to transfer recurring meeting to a new owner. some times you change role or resign an schedule recurring meetings are hard to manage to accommodate this changes of ownership mostly i need to cancel a meeting date or reschedule.

I'm leaving my job as a coordinator at a large organization - which means that I'm spending a TON of time reallocating calendar hold ownership.
We should be able to easily change the owner of a calendar hold so that the entire hold doesn't have to be deleted and recreated.
I am currently leading a meeting once a week and would like to handoff the host role as I am leaving the group and will no longer attend.
It would be nice to handoff this meeting to my successor instead of deleting it so he can recreate it.
This would be useful as a lot of people switch departments and such and this would save people from canceling recurring meetings and rebooking them by their replacement.
Enable someone to transfer the "Meeting organizer" role to someone ells.

All change ownership from one (1) account calendar to another calendar (when have full shared calendar), same like Google calendar and also adding send to all message (to all attendees included on the calendar) will really helpful, any chance.

It would great if you could transfer ownership of calendar invite series. This would come in handy when staff leave the department.
At work it is not uncommon that people change responsibilities, move tonew assignements or just change jobs.
It would be good to have the possibility to move the responsibility for a series of meetings to the new responsible person.
As a user I want to be able to forward an anonymised/privatised version of meeting invitations, because I want my family to see when I will be home late, and I want my colleagues in other organisations to see when I am available for new meetings.
When someone is updating their meeting invitations, theses changes need to be reflected in the other calendars via the suggested anonymised/privatised automatically.

It would be nice to change an invite in one person's calendar to another person's calendar -- making them the owner. Great if people are leaving the company, and you wouldn't have to re-invent the invites.
Being to allocate/ assign the responsibility for running a meeting on your behalf and remove it from your calendar without deleting the meeting.

To be able to delegate a meeting request to a colleague like you can in Lotus Notes when not available.
When people change roles, the new person should be able to take over the outgoing person's invites seamlessly, so that all of the attendees don't have to get a cancellation for every meeting and then a new invite from the new person.
When I receive forwarded meeting request attached to an email as an attachment (noticed for skype meetings), it is not possible to import it directly to calendar after opening the request details. It needs to be done manually by creating new time blocker and adding meeting details.

Provide the ability to see the free/busy of individuals, when forwarding a meeting invite to them.
This is to cater for scenarios where you are delegating a meeting to another person and want to see if they are actually free at the designated meeting time.

This is virtually the same as another suggestion requesting ability to change ownership / organizer of meetings:
