I suggest you ...

rename One Drive and sharepoint URL

Currently when we share files through One Drive and SharePoint, a file URL forms automatically, and we cannot rename the URL.

I suggest that URL forms based on our custom domain instead initial domain, so it looks much more professional to those who we wish to share the files to.

    I find it shocking that Microsoft dont give you the ability to change URL its just mapping in the end of the day. I paid my subscription upfront and now i need to get a new one, shocking Mr Gates....

    How many votes does it take for Microsoft to fix this? We just migrated from G-Suite and the domain for SharePoint is not the default domain it's supposed to be. We don't have any data on SharePoint at all, we/they should be able to change the URL right away, yet they say we have to purchase a new service and migrate the data over again???? I'm SO MAD right now.

    Not allow to change the initial domain name and suggest to change tenant. But tenant to tenant to migration also need to use third party tools. what kind of solution is that! Ridiculous!!

    The inability to change the domain name is causing legal problems for us and changing to a new tenant to resolve such a simple issue is ridiculous

    This is a huge problem for our Company. To Change tenant is no Option with 200 + users...

    I agree with others. We have changed our business name and would like the domain on our sharepoint to be consistent with our revised business name. I am informed this is not currently possible. Surely this is an issue that will need to be addressed.

    This is a huge issue. We created a tenant, and now need to update with one of our custom domains to more accurately reflect how we are using the service and not confuse staff who won't recognize our original tenant name. With 500+ users utilizing Exchange and other services, there is no way we are migrating everything over to a new tenant!

    +1 this is an essential feature - we don't even need to change the name, just remove the custom part of the URL. Microsoft solution of moving ALL data to new tenant seems like a bad joke. Feels like a lose-lose situation to tell management we are either stuck with our old company name (um, no!) or massive time cost to move tenants. This sharepoint and onedrive hard-coded URL needs to be fixed ASAP.

    We have the same problem. Our company went through name change right after migrating to O365. Doing it all again just to achieve the right URL at an awfully high price and time …. Just not possible. This really needs to be addressed and should we a high priority issue. Thank you!

  • David Wallach commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, we also went though agency name change recently, unfortunately right after migrating to O365. So to endure another migration (all content from SharePoint, OneDrive and Email!) just to achieve a more appropriate URL seems to be an awfully high price to pay for this truly common occurrence. This really needs to be addressed. Thank you!

    +1 Alexis JALLEY - ACTEAM-IT (previously IMANAGERIUM).
    Please add this change request to your roadmap.

  • Lionel Ens commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There are many companies that go through a re-branding, merging, renaming process. It would be very nice to be able to change the organization name throughout all of the office365 infrastructure.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This would be very useful. I was unaware that I had to rely on the default URL when I first signed up, or I would have thought more about it.

    Please add this feature as soon as possible. It will help for all the organizations going through Business merging and renaming of their companies

    The admin who setup the Offcie 365 account for Creditinfo Jamaica, registered it with the domain rmorriscreditinfojamaica. Now this appears in all our shared one drive links. We need this to be changed to creditinfojamaica. We want to see this change as soon as possible.

  • Lars Lisberg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree. It would be a great thing, if we could select or configure a custom domain name instead of initial domain hardcoded into url.

  • Jo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    After passing through a number of mergers and acquisitions, we have a new company name. It is absurd that the only way to change our SharePoint url is to create a new O365 subscription and then migrate everything over. We've never even used SharePoint, so it might have made more sense to allow us some freedom of choice when deciding to deploy instead of auto-creating the URLs when the account was created.

    This has always been a major limitation on SharePoint Online that doesn't exist in the other instances. SharePoint on premise, its easy to create alias or alternate domains for a SharePoint site. Heck, its even still there on the SharePoint Online for the now defunct public SharePoint.

    I can appreciate not taking up more * names, but you've validated our 'vanity' domains for E-mail easily enough. Make it so the entry has to match our validated domains.

    If the issue is the SSL and multiple names, Azure already does this for their App Services. They let you upload a company SSL, they validate the CNAME resolves to the right place, then lets you put it in there. If you can't use the Azure services themselves, at least use what they've learned to implement on your service.

    In short, it should not be that hard to have have an alias of
