Hi. I've created an Org wide team and its added a number of Owners, how are these owners selected? I thought it may be from roles in Azure, but doesn't appear to be. Any help or advice would be appreciated. I can't find anything about this in the MS documentation for creating an Org team.

    Hi @LouD

    By default, a user who creates a new team is granted the owner status. After adding a member to a team, an owner can also promote a member to owner status. It is also possible for an owner to demote their own status to a member. For more details about how to create Teams from O365 group, you could read this article.
