Hi All,

Today, new small sharing 😊

In my last article Office 365 – Modern Team Sites / Office 365 group – Few findings related to user management we discussed how to add modern team site owner from the site itself which adds as group owner as well.

In this article we will discuss how add teams owner from the “Microsoft Teams” desktop app. If you didn’t have installed the “Microsoft Teams” desktop app (desktop client for the Microsoft Teams), from here can be downloaded and installed

Following are the steps to add owner:

Select the team and select the “Manage team” option in desktop app for which we need to add the owner as

Once we clicked on “Manage team” option we will be redirected to “Members” tab as

On this tab there is button “+ Add member”, by clicking them we can add members to the team as

Search for the user which we need to add the member and click on “Add” button available at right hand side. Once all the users added which we need to add members/owners, close the dialog.

Select the user to whom we need to promote, from “Role” drop-down select the “Owner” as
