When creating events from the My Events tab, the current administrator's name is included as an owner by default. The default owner cannot be modified or deleted. Events that are created from the All Events tab are not assigned a default owner.

The Include Subordinates box is checked by default to include users in the subordinate organizational units (OU). Uncheck the box to not include subordinate OUs.

Owners can be deleted by clicking the Trash Can icon to the left of the owner.
