Sometimes it's important (and practical) to grant someone else access to your Fellow account. This could be an assistant, a direct report, or someone else. Either way, you can set this up with delegated access. Once delegated access has been given, the person will then be able to perform most functions on behalf of the account user.

Delegated Access and the Meeting Copilot

This depends on whose account you're logged into on the video conferencing platform. The Meeting Copilot gets the names of call participants directly from your video conferencing provider. This means if you attend a call on your manager's behalf and log into their Teams account to join the meeting, the Copilot will identify you with the name used in Teams.
