define a deputy on account owner level

It is not possible to define a deputy on accont owner Level. So if I am not available as account owner multiple functions are not accessible. You can work around via API. However this is some other drawbacks.

    What is the status of this ability?

    Quote of another customer: "we need the option to define a stand-in in case that the account owner becomes unavailable, either planned (e.g. vacation) or unplanned (e.g. sickness, accident, etc.). Sharing the account owner's credentials (or treating it as a functional user) is not a valid option as this violates corporate security rules."

    My comment: this is probably true for any larger organization.

    The ability to set up a secondary account owner in case of OOO or other reasons is in planning now.  Target is Q2.
