Roles in a Teams Session/Meeting

Microsoft Teams offers three roles for online class sessions and meetings.

  1. The person who created the session/meeting has the Organizer role.
  2. By default, participants joining a session/meeting have the Presenter role with most of the capabilities of the Organizer. Note that a Presenter cannot remove the Organizer from the session or modify Meeting Options for the session.
  3. The Attendee role has just enough capabilities to participate in the session/meeting.

If you as instructor or staff meeting leader have the Organizer role, you can change which participants have which role in your session.

See the Microsoft Support "Roles in a Teams meeting" webpage for details on the capabilities of each role.
