User Profile Mobile Phone Number
I'm surprised this is still a thing, but if you populate the mobile phone attribute for users in AD, you apparently can (though not in my experience) get said attribute to sync to your Azure AD profile. However, it DOES NOT sync to your SharePoint online/Delve profiles.
This is a fairly annoying thing that's been on people's radar for about 3 years, apparently. I found a powershell script that is supposed to get around the issue, but so far I haven't gotten it to work.
Having that attribute be one of the ones that syncs from Azure AD profiles would be very helpful. Even better would be the ability to map attributes like you can in SharePoint On-premises.
This is a must-have functionality for organizations that don't allow users to change phone numbers themselves but have the information in the AD! For example, if you have work phone numbers for employees but only mobile phones for consultants, consultants' phone numbers won't show in Delve and that's really an issue. Please fix this!
I am also interested to know if this fixed or scheduled to be fixed?
Any news on when this will be fixed, or have been ?
This is complete BS. Microsoft spins it's wheels on **** people don't want and ignore the things we do want.

I am amazed this isn't a standard and PowerShell and other work around need to be used. Its just as painful as the Tumbnailphoto not being used from AD. Get this stuff sorted its basic features you have removed!!
When will this be corrected?

It should be standard availble that either this is synced automatically OR that you can customize what properties should be synced or not.....Couldn't believe this is not available.
Workaround - Create a custom attribute on AD called ( Mobile Phone ). Populate the field and kick off a sync to Azure AD which in turn populates SPO
