Assign team owners and members in Microsoft Teams

Assign roles in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams supports two roles: owner and member. The user who creates a team automatically becomes the team owner. The owner can then add members to the team and also promote any of its members to the owner role. Team members can add other users by themselves in a public team or raise a request for users to be added in the case of a private team. Owners and members can also have  moderator capabilities  if moderation is turned on for Teams.

To assign an owner using the Microsoft Teams admin center:

The following table will show the difference between an owner and a member.
