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.

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

    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.
