Overview: MS Teams calls "delegates" as someone that can make and receive calls on your behalf. "You can pick someone in Teams to be your delegate—when you add a delegate, you’re essentially sharing your phone line with them, so they can see and share all of your calls."

Please note: Configuring Delegates is ONLY accessible on the Microsoft Teams DESKTOP client for Windows and Mac
