The ability to change the payee or the owner on the expense report is only available in the expense module.
By default the payee and the owner are the same.
In order to change the payee you need to not only be the owner of the report but also have the right permission.
If you are an expense creator, you may not be able to change the payee. This is likely because you don't have the permission to do so. Please reach out to your customer success manager and they would be happy to create a custom role for your account. To learn more about the different expense roles, read here.
The expense module is enabled for your legal entity / company.
When you are assigning a payee or an owner for an expense report, the delegate needs to have the same visibility and permissions.
