Synchronize Mobile phone userprofile property on Sharepoint Online
In Sharepoint Online, some user profile properties are not synchronized with Azure AD : for example Mobile Phone".
So, I suggest :
- add "Mobile Phone" to the syncronization process
- give the SP Administrator to choose user profile properties to be syncrhonized.
How has this not been implemented yet? Mobile phone is probably one of the most useful user properties after name, email and work phone but is bizarrely not available on SP online, due to the mapping of some non-existent 'CellPhone' property!
User profile management in SP online seems to have regressed massively having previously taken giant strides forward in recent on-premise versions; on SP online is now more difficult to administer than WSS 3.0; congratulations on leaping 15 years back in time.
Like all other users, we need this feature to be implemented, to have a coherent directory with all properties, and not 2 or 3 directories (AD, Azure AD, Sharepoint, Yammer ...) with different / desynchronized fields / datas
Please add this.

I don't understand why you would implement sync on other fields like work number why not just do the extra 5 seconds of work and include mobile
This seems like a no brainer.

Why on earth isn't this implemented yet?

This needs to done ASAP. A large portion of our workforce is on the road a lot and mobile is their main contact on certain days.

This is the major blocker to us adopting Delve as a replacement for our existing user search and phone list system.
I can't understand why this wasn't included in the first place to be honest esp as many companies don't even have desk phones these days.
I need it too!
