KB0104 – Adding Additional Owners to Microsoft Teams

By default, all teachers are setup as “Owners” for their class teams within Microsoft Teams. Being an owner of a team gives teachers the ability to add and remove members (students) as well as adding and removing other staff/teachers as owners as well. This can be useful where another teacher may require access to a team on a temporary basis.

To add another teacher as an owner of a team you are currently an owner of, follow the instructions below;

  1. Open Microsoft Teams
  2. Select Teams from the left hand menu to view your full list of available teams
  3. Click the 3 dots icon to open the menu on the team you wish to edit, then select Add Member
  4. Type the name of the user you wish to add – as you start typing their name, a list of autocomplete entries will appear.
  5. Select the correct name from the list then click the Add button
  6. To the right of the users name, change the drop down box from Member  to Owner then click the Close button
