Assigning the role of co-organiser in a Microsoft Teams meeting

Assigning the role of co-organiser in a Microsoft Teams meeting

Organisers can now share control by assigning the new "Co-organiser" role to people they invite.

Co-organisers will be able to use almost all of the organiser's features, including the management of Meeting options.

Feature ID: 81391 | Release date: June 2021

Activate co-organiser meeting role

First, invite the desired persons as participants to the meeting.

Then press: Meeting options in the Teams meeting invitation.

Select the internal and external presenters as co-organisers.


Then add the necessary co-organisers to the meeting via Meeting Options.


Only tenantaccounts can be chosen as co-organisers. This is different from the presenter role, which can be assigned to guest accounts of other Teams-tenants.

The reason is probably because co-organisers can change the roles assigned to meeting participants.

Dear Jasper,
This describes how to make someone a presenter, but the headline talks about making someone a co-organiser. How do you do that?

Would love to know your thoughts, please leave a comment.x
