Ability to remove disabled users from Org Charts
Currently Delve displays a person on the org chart if they have a valid account and the manager is set. It gets its data from AD and Azure AD and funnels that through SP Online to get generated.
The issue is that newly disabled people are not removed from the org chart. For instance we mark an employee as disabled, remove their licensing and ensure access is blocked. Even with this done, a departed employee will display on the org chart. How Microsoft support suggested to fix it - ManagerID, but for OneDrive Notifications and rights transfers we cannot remove manager id. Delete the person from Azure AD (o365) - We cannot also immediately delete that person from Azure AD (o365) for the similar reasons including the loss of data from that persons account.
We would like the org chart to have the ability to recognize disabled users and or hidden users should not be displayed on the org chart. This would allow our org chart to be correct all of the time.
We are currently working on automatically removing hidden/disabled users from the org chart.

any update on this one?
This is really getting rediculous, 2.5 years and no action on this... Foreign Principles, Cloud Meeting Rooms, all kinds of 'users', which are no users at all. It kind of bugs me that a corporate directory has 'by default' so much waste.

I still have people in our organisation complaining to me about this. It's been 2 years! Is there an update?
Martin Sørensen commented
So maybe a status?

We also need this feature. Delve really isn't ready for ********* until you get issues like these fixed.

+1 for this feature. We cannot use Delve until this is updated.
We also need the ability to block specific users from Delve but keep the email account active for forwarding to mangers after a person leaves the company. We retain the AD account as disabled for 6 months before deleting. We do not want a disabled user to be seen in Delve.
This most needed feature and it's blocker for our migration because we want the user to disappear immediately after it's disabled/deleted from AD
Still working on it for over a year now and nothing on the office 365 roadmap site about it?!? I am going to go out on a limb and say this feature is NOT actually going to happen, because I'm sure it is more than a years worth of work to add a simple filter to a query.

@O365 Delve Feedback, please could you let us know if the functionality to control the org chart is coming? We absolutely need this.
I would love an update too.

@Microsoft - Any updates on this idea?
I am waiting impatiently for this feature. Somebody does know when we can expect it?
Christina Wheeler commented
This is greatly needed! Dealing with an O365 client migration now that needs this feature bad.

Strongly supported. We have users that ...
* Die ...
* Have to leave us due to misconduct of some sort
* Upper management opting for new careers outside our company, where it is important that they become invisible internally quick
* We also have a period from when the users are disabled untill we remove them from AD and subsequently AAD where we would like them not listed, but cannot change or remove their manager
* We have admin accounts with the same manager that we would like not listed
* Associated personell like board members etc. that we do not want to list
Basically we need to have some control over this feature...

My company needs this feature too. Doesn't seem like it would be a difficult change to make.
Any update on this highly requested feature? This is extremely visible to our users!

Has anyone seen this Blog that details the steps to resolve the disabled users surfacing in the Delve org chart and SharePoint people search? Looks like a viable approach. Wondering if it's been successfully implemented.
