How to set initials in microsoft 365?

Gian Duri Calonder 0 Reputation points


In Outlook at the company address book you've got a initial field.

How can I in Microsoft 365 set this initials for a user?

We curently have some chaos with internally used initials and I thought, it could help if we can set there the initials for internally people.

    Hello @JimmySalian-2011

    Currently we have a implementing ongoing. Some user's were made directly on 365, some not.

    For the one made in local AD this synced.

    For the one not made local AD I'll wanna do it on AAD.
