M365 Changelog: (Updated) Co-organizer experience updates in Teams Webinars and Townhalls

MC688109 – Updated March 5, 2024: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Scheduling, setting up, and managing an event is not a simple task. Which is why Microsoft allows co-organizer to be added to the event so they can work alongside or on behalf of the organizer. So far co-organizers were able to set up event theming, manage registration, meeting options, view reports and more but were not able to edit event details like title, date/time, description, event group; nor publish or cancel event. Now they can! Co-organizer can edit event details, publish, and cancel the event like the organizer can. So once the co-organizer is added they will have full parity of experience as organizer and control/manage/edit event.

When this will happen:

Targeted release: Microsoft will begin rolling out early June 2024 (previously mid-April) and expects to complete by mid-June 2024 (previously late April).

General Availability: Microsoft will begin rolling out mid-June 2024 (previously late April) and expects to complete by early July 2024 (previously early May).

How this will affect your organization:

When co-organizer opens the event scheduling page, they should have the ability to edit the details page, publish, and cancel the event. 

What you need to do to prepare:

Nothing required to prepare.
