  1. SharePoint 2016 on-prem Remove 'profiles missing from Import' should not take 30 days

    SharePoint 2016 on-prem Configure Synchronization Connections - if deselecting containiners is required than powershell scripts need to be run to purge the users. The Purge only pushes the users to a 'profile missing from import' state/group. The actually removal of these user takes 30 days. Unclear of the necessity of this but even if there was a count of how many users are moved to this state/group would be helpful. This cleanup job runs in the back ground with no update or status of its success.

    Thank you,
    Andrea

  2. Cannot Seach on Newly added user profile fields

    I was informed by Microsoft senior engineer that SharePoint Online not able to perform search on newly added user profile field.

    eg: Technical Skill : Management

    It seems to me that SharePoint Online functions are very limited and not user friendly toward end user.

  3. Have a recomended replacement for Organization Profiles

    We are faced with finding a replacement for Organization Profiles. We know they are depreciated with start of 2013, and they are in 2016, but all MS contacts we've talked to have said it could get removed at any time. We heavily use Organization Profiles to keep track of the housing communities, their addresses and employees for our company as well as all of our division locations. My MS rep suggested I post here.

    Has anybody else migrated their Organization Profiles to a new technology or have any ideas of where to look?

  4. Add Promotes site feature functionality to SharePoint Online

    I think Promotes site feature was a simple, nice and useful feature in SharePoint 2013. It gave SharePoint admin capability to list relevant important sites links for specific set of users and it was manageable from SharePoint 2013 Central Admin.
    I’m not sure why this functionality has been removed from SharePoint online. You can still find “Manage Promote sites” under SharePoint Online admin center-->User Profile-->My site setting but once you add some links with relevant target Audiences to the list there is no place for this web part to appear on SharePoint Online. Previously in SharePoint 2013 this web part…

  5. Please remove check for "LastKnowParent" property when syncing users

    According to: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/spses/2015/03/04/sharepoint-2013-active-directory-import-and-known-behaviors/

    If the user object has value for a property “LastKnownParent” and that points to an OU which is not being imported, then that profile will be ignored during import process.

    Please remove this check since it seem quit unnecessary. for using a nice word

  6. Seen by

    Under Manager User Properties, there is an option for Only Me or Everyone. It would be great if there was an option to choose another group - say management or supervisors - to be able to view the information the individual enters. This would be useful for us as the user uses a custom section to fill in Emergency Contact info. The manager would want access to this info, but we would not want it to be seen by peers and coworkers.

  8. Delve の画面でユーザー プロファイルの編集画面に遷移する文字リンクをクリックした際の動作について

    OneDrive for Business へのアクセス権が許可されていない場合、ユーザー プロファイルの編集画面に遷移するための "こちら" もしくは "編集”という文字リンクをクリックしても反応がありません。アクセス権がない場合、それをわかりやすくするために、「アクセス権がありません」などのメッセージが表示されるようにしたい。

  9. Improve properties order

    Can you please make it easier to change the order of the properties? Now it is too labourintensive to bring a property from top to a new group at the bottom of the list, because:


    1. use of up/down -> drag/drop would be much faster

    2. changing order sometimes results in unexpected 'jumps' of a property, mostly back to it's original posision. Quite annoying....

  10. Sort People Column by Name

    If you have a column of "Person or Group" type, you are unable to sort the names in a view alphabetically. When you click on sort and filter at the top of the column in a view, you get the message "This column type cannot be sorted." However, all of the names below this message are displayed in alphabetical order, so it would seem this should be possible.

  12. Concatenation of user profile property mapping

    There should be a flexibilty to merge two mapping for single user property. I have a oracle database and i have some value there also i have some details related to user in another Active Directory attribute.

    I want to merge these valyue from BDC and AD to create the custom property value. It will really help in such cases.

  13. Redesign interface for selecting the OUs from AD when configuring User Profile Sync

    It is currently very tedious to drill down through a complex AD structure to select the desired OU because the performance is very slow. It would be nice if this process was re-engineered to incorporate cached OUs and an improved UI.
