  2. Multiple managers in Azure AD user profile

    I would like to be able to assign more than one manager to a user profile.

    Our staff can work across several departments, so this would make the organisational chart useful, whereas it isn't right now.

  3. Sync Assistant Attribute from Azure AD

    The standard assistant field is not synced from Azure AD into the SharePoint UPS. This is a standard attribute that should be synced.

  4. Allow us to trigger SharePoint Online User Profile Sync... and give us the ability to see the timer job schedule

    Currently we can wait from 5 minutes to 48 hours to see User Profiles Properties Sync from AAD to the SharePoint Online User Profile Service.. I've even see it take 72 hours.

    This is a problem, especially when we use manager fields to workflows and approval processes.

    It would be nice to be able to tirgger a profile sync, and view the profile sync schedule to we are aware of the wait times.

  8. Sync the profile information of inactive users

    User profile information cannot be updated if the user is determined as an inactive user in Site Collection when updating the profile information in SharePoint Online.

    It is possible to set inactive user information as an active user with cmdlet in SharePoint Server, but there is no such feature in SPO.

    If you want to set an inactive user as an active user, you have to add a permission individually in SPO and there is no way to do so with Windows PowerShell cmdlet. As a result, you don’t have efficient management.

    So, I would like to efficiently manage the…

  10. UPN change wont update document properties of your files

    Whenever the UPN of a user changes (e.g. domain consolidation, acquiring another company or simply due to marriage) the document properties (e.g. author or editor) of all your files on SharePoint or OneDrive wont update automatically.

    This leads to issues when user search for their files as they are not found under the new UPN
    Also if you use webparts which are based on these properties (e.g. show my last modified files) they wont come up with correct results.

    Please vote so that the Product Group consider to fix this situation!

  11. Create user profiles in SPO for shared mailboxes (EDU tenants)

    Our university is an EDU tenant of Microsoft, and we have a lot of shared mailboxes (as unlicensed users, sync'd from AD > AAD > SPO).
    From time to time, SharePoint site admins wants to use such mailboxes to be the central contact point for enquiries etc, and the best way to do it is to put it up as the "page author".

    However, because it is an EDU tenant, unlicensed users do not get user profiles created in User Profile application (UPA), and show up as "external users" when they are entered, or email address is entered in people…

  16. expand the cmdlet feature enabling me to get accessed the user profiles on SharePoint admin center.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):SharePoint 管理センターのユーザー プロファイルにアプローチが可能なコマンドレットの機能拡充希望

    Wishing to implement the feature of cmdlet to access to the user profiles on SharePoint admin center.

    ■Description_JP (内容):既定のコマンドレットでは SharePoint 管理センターのユーザー プロファイルを変更することが出来ない。ユーザー数が多く GUI 上での変更を行う際に多くの工数がかかるため、既定機能でのユーザー プロファイルの編集が可能なコマンドレットの実装を希望します。 

    I am currently unable to change the user profiles on SharePoint admin center even if I use the default cmdlet. To decrease the workloads in case a number of users change their profiles on GUI, I hope the cmdlet to be implemented that could enable me to edit user profiles along with a default feature.

  17. unmark my sites which are scheduled for deletion once it is marked by Timer jobs or PowerShell


    1. You are temporarily disabling the users in AD. After few days you will make the accounts active again. But even though accounts become active in SharePoint their mysites are marked for deletion - suggest to change the whole logic, it should unmark for deletion.

    2. Even if the user doesn't have a mysite created an email is being sent to his manager with URL of his user info page - suggest to remove the link if user doesn't have any my site created before.

  18. Enable ad-hoc or scheduled full-sync for SPO profiles

    In our organization we noticed that SPO user profiles are not being updated when their line-manager UPN get's renamed.

    After case investigation with MS engineer it turned out to be the behavior by desing on SPO backend systems.

    Currently tenant admins have no control over the sync process, so it would be very beneficial to either run full-sync with AAD more often or let SPO admins ability to trigger the process manually via PowerShell or similar.

    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

  20. SharePoint Online People picker does not resolve people in Azure AD groups

    I've found that in SPOnline, if you add Azure AD groups (I've only tested with Security Groups at this stage), to the SharePoint groups (e.g. Owners, Members, Visitors), then the people pickers inside that Site Collection, will not resolve people.

    To get around this, you either have to add (and then remove) the person, as an individual, manually to any of the SP Groups, or that person has to login to the Site Collection.

    This is a real pain when you're trying to set up sites before people access them and the fact that it's localized to Site Collections, means…
