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.

Please make this happen!
Roles change within an organization and a recurring meeting in place for the team might need to be hosted by another team member.
Instead of cancelling and rescheduling meetings again, transferring ownership of a meeting would provide flexibility.
The new person would now be in charge of the recurring meeting and the original would become a participant

Please make it possible to make someone else the meeting organizer for a meeting/recurring meeting without having to cancel the meeting/series.
I'm the owner of a shared calendar. I elevated the permission level for a user with whom I share the calendar. Even as a Publishing Author, she can not send a meeting invitation that identifies herself as the organizer.
If she is calling the meeting, I don't want my name shown as "organizer", and I don't want all of the replies coming to me. She should be shown as the "organizer". She needs to follow up on replies, not me.
Also, the average user does not know to change to list view to check who organized the meeting. The organizer's name should appear in the day, week, month views.
Please PLEASE enable these features.
Pouvoir modifier l'organisateur de la réunion. Ou simplement transférer la demande d'organisation à une autre personne.
Let the organizer switch the responsibility of the meeting to an attendee and leave the invite
Stephen Day commented
This ability is long overdue! Often times the owner of meetings scheduled for the year suddenly changes position, leave the company, dies, etc. and now the only option is to delete all the meetings and start over from scratch. This is a "role" that should be able to reassign to another user.

Currently, you have a way to move meetings from one persons calendar that controls the invite to another person, BUT...the person who no longer controls the meeting once moved still shows as the organizer and if the new controller updates the meeting invite, it sends it under the old person's name. This affects Teams as well. If this person is no longer with the company, then ALL of their meetings have to be cancelled and resent which is not a very productive use of anyone time. There should be a way to turn over ownership of a meeting without doing this and for the new person's Team Meeting credentials to replace the other person's.
Megan Trites commented
Allow the original meeting organizer to switch organizer. This will allow the meeting to not have to cancel and resend it out just because the owner changed
I guess people need this feature in TEAMS, too! Even more then in Outlook.
Emilie Grail commented
That way the attendee could take the lead on a serial meeting to change timetable / place of the meeting / invitations...
Make someone else meeting organisator. Having meetings scheduled for the rest of the year, but having a different role in meanwhile. Should be able to give someone else the role of meeting organisator.
I create meetings for my new employees to meet with others, but I don't need to be at the meeting. It would be nice if the other people could be granted meeting ownership so that I don't have to be the go between to coordinate their schedules. Please add the ability to transfer ownership of the meeting!
Would like to be able to change meeting organiser for a single event within a series when I am not available. The new organiser can then see status for invitees and know when you are not chairing the meeting.

Amend owner of a calendar invite, rather than deleting for the whole group and having to re-submit the invite under alternative email account.
This would be useful in reoccurring invite instances, where perhaps the original sender or host of the meeting invite is on annual leave that day.

This is the fifth most upvoted request in UV for Outlook Calendar right now, yet there appears to be no acknowledgment from the MS team. Could we get an idea if this is being looked at, backlogged, or declined?

Create an option to transfer meeting organizers

Ability to change the owner of a meeting or series without having to cancel and then re-create the meeting, just with a different owner.
I started asking and researching about how to manage a calendar when someone leaves a job so this could be managed by someone else but I'm guessing this may not be possible and to honest I'm surprised that this is not an option to promote or make someone the new owner of a calendar. We send out calendar invites daily. Come on MS and get something like this added soon.
