Microsoft Family - how to change from member to organizer

Hi

I've placed my kid as member but I need to both update her age and change her to organizer. Whenever I select "Manage my child's profile info" I get the "Manage permissions" page stating that children require adult consent to create account. That page only leads me back to the previous one. My kid already has an account that she's using and is currently a member in my family. Can anyonehelp?

It's easiest just to remove from the family and add again. When you do, make sure to select organizer on the invite.

Where do I go to remove from the family?

 Go to https://account.microsoft.com/family/ then choose "More Options" on the right hand side of the "App and game limits", it will show a sub-menu which has option to "Remove from Family group".

Thanks for the reply.  I had to remove her from the family and resubmit her invitation as an organizer. There should be an easier way.

I am going through the very same issue. I guess I will have to take the same route as you did. But I absolutely agree - there should be an easier way - a simple option to "Make Member an Organizer" button...

Agree, As the Organizer, I should be able to control my family settings.  If I want to upgrade an older child or wife to organizer, It should be easier than the steps above.  Uninviting and resubmitting the invite again is not efficient at all.
