Users who create a group in Office 365 become the group's owner by default. When they want to leave the group, they won't be allowed until another owner is designated. In this movie, learn how to promote a group member to owner and demote an owner to group member, even remove that group member to save them the time and trouble.
- [Instructor] Here's a typical scenario you might run into…as an administrator for Office 365 and groups.…Someone in your organization has created a new group.…They become the owner of that group because they created it.…Other people join, and then they decide…they no longer need to be a part of the group.…Here I am logged in as Mark Tristener,…one of the members of this group.…So Mark goes up to the Joined dropdown, gives it a click,…and clicks leave group to leave the group.…But then a message pops up indicating that he's the…group's only owner at this time,…and therefore he can't leave until someone else…is promoted to owner.…
And it looks like Mark should be able to do this,…so he clicks OK, and he goes to David Rivers.…Hovers over the name, there should be something here…that allows him to promote the person.…Well, maybe click the name.…There's details about this person,…and things that can be done with this member,…but there's nothing here that indicates…that this person could be promoted to owner.…So, what do they do?…
