  1. 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…

  2. Use User Profile Properites everywhere in Office 365

    It would be nice, if the SharePoint User Profile properties could be used everywhere in O365. For example we would like to define a display template in the People app, that displays some user profile properies.

    Generally we have now to many places to store user properties: Exchange, O365 User Administration, SharePoint.

  3. Change Manage User Profiles Page to a Filtered View

    Sharepoint admin center under User Profiles > Manage User Profiles should show all user profiles and the "Find profiles" should be changed to a "filtered view" selecting users in a semicolon-delimited list.

  4. Feature for changing multiple user profile pictures

    I think it would be convenient for admins to change multiple user profile pictures in SharePoint admin center at a time.

  5. User Profile Service Sync Containers

    When updating User Profile Service Sync Containers for Microsoft Active Directory OU (Organizational Units) it is painful to have to select an OU with a sub OU in it, and the whole section refreshes when you expand it and you have to go to TOP again and then scroll down to where you were. You can't be productive doing this and it is easy to make a mistake!

  6. Allowing other user properties in AD sync with SharePoint Online User Profile

    We need to populate all other SharePoint Online User Profiles that are missing. The User profiles are available in AD and Azure AD. But not in SharePoint Online.

    Bulk import is high maintenance. we need a permanent solution of automatic synchronization from Azure AD/Office365.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. Powershell Command to Repair Groups in upa.MemberGroup Table

    We ran into an issue where workflows and audience memberships were failing for users that were part of nested AD groups. The workaround solution given by Support was not a viable solution and would have been very cumbersome to maintain. Understanding the huge risk in editing the SP database, I deleted one AD group, ran a full synch (we are on SP2016, on prem, using AD Import, not FIMS\MIMS) and the problem was resolved for the members of the deleted group. I then did this for multiple other groups that were having this issue and all of the symptoms were…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. Hide sharepoint member list from other sharepoint members

    It would be a useful option to add hide group members from sharepoint group list. If a company wanted to share say a bid or contract via sharepoint bidders would be able to see who they are bidding against just by clicking the site member list. This is just one use case but I'm sure there are others.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Ability to assign different default group views to user groups

    Create the ability to assign a different default group view (how documents are grouped and sorted as default on site(s)) to different user groups vs. 1 default view for the entire organization.
