sync profile pictures to office 365 applications
Profile pictures currently only sync for Outlook and Skype for Business. I would like them to sync to Excel, Word, etc. without hooking up an ADFS server.
2 years later, still not working...
I'm very surprised this only has 37 votes. The ability to sync profile pictures across all the Office 365 applications is a must. In Word when adding comments it would be very helpful to have pictures instead of initials of the person who added the comment. Also, I don't understand why this ability exists for personal Microsoft accounts but not business Microsoft accounts. If anything I would think it would be the opposite.
I agree, the fact that this is not possible without an on premise AD is ridiculous. I work for several organisations who all use cloud-only deployments of office 365, and I need a way to visually differentiate these accounts within the desktop apps for Word and Excel.
How is it that there is no way to even set a local profile picture within the desktop apps? This is a terrible user experience.
