    Providing a consistent user experience across M365 that continues to function as expected is a very complex problem which we have been validating in a Private Preview Program.

    The good news is that we are once again able to accept additional nominations into the Private Preview. If you would like to nominate yourself you can do so at https://aka.ms/SPOTenantRenameNomination. Please note that a nomination does not necessarily mean that you will be accepted. We are reviewing these on a case by case basis and will only be in contact if accepted.

    For more information about renaming your SharePoint domain including the current limitations and process visit https://aka.ms/SPOTenantRename.

    Disgusting that Microsoft quietly removed the much larger and popular request to achieve this same result at a tenant level. After blowing off the request for years and deleting the votes on numerous occasions they're finally getting rid of uservoice but have strategically left this post in place.

    This URL was the vote for renaming the prefix for the entire tenant (not just SharePoint) e.g. contoso.onmicrosoft.com to fabrikim.onmicrosoft.com

    But it's been replaced by a splash page. Sure this is a step in the right direction, but where is your customer service Microsoft? After so many years of waiting, a statement at the last Ignite and a "working on it" post on the forum itself you've just dropped it completely?

    @Ian Caldwell - probably the best news we've had since February this year :)

    Sure Microsoft can't fix the global pandemic but they "might" be able to finally fix this one haha

    It's worth voting on the below post that covers the complete rename of the tenant name/sub domain name (subdomain.onmicrosoft.com). Also covers SPO and all other services under the suite.

    This one has over 12k votes!

    The most frustrating part of this is Microsoft's response seems to have completely missed the point Dan was making and instead of taking ownership of the actual issue, they've sugar coated a different solution to a different problem (renaming site URLs) instead of addressing the tenant renaming issue.

    Nearly a 4 year old post and no progress or information! This post has nearly 9k votes:

    I read on a tweet somewhere that this was one of the topics being discussed at Ignite this year (nov 2019). I'll try dig it out, I have been waiting for this for YEARS!

    We're about to enter Q2 for 2019 and still no update on the original MSFT post. I do wonder if this thread is even being monitored by a MSFT representative. Your customers feel like this has been swept under the rug.

    PROVIDE SOME CUSTOMER SERVICE and have the decency to respond at least!
