    Providing the ability to scale from renaming individual sites, to all sites within a SharePoint tenant, while ensuring a consistent user experience across M365 is a complex problem. We have been working hard on this long-awaited feature and are currently validating this with a subset of customers in a closed (no longer accepting nominations) Private Preview Program. As we consolidate their feedback, we will provide another update in the next few months.

    This is awful. Full stop. We are re-branding and we cannot continue to use the old name which features in ALL shared links to Sharepoint or OneDrive. I don't care about changing the name - just remove the name so it is never, ever an issue again. Microsoft's suggested solution of migration an entire tenant is useless.

    We are re-branding. Can I change the sitename? Yes, says Microsoft support - with these three easy steps - and two are optional!

    If you must change the domain of a team site (contoso.sharepoint.com to fourthcoffee.sharepoint.com) you will need to do the following:
    1. Create a new Office 365 account and use the name that you want to use for the onmicrosoft.com domain as part of sign up.
    2. (Optional) Remove your custom domain from the original account (the one with the team site name that you didn't want)
    (Optional) Move any email, files, or other data you may have set up with that account to the new one.
