Make is possible to change tenant name in Office365
Iv realized that there is no option to change the tenant name in Office365.
This would be a great tool for businesses that change their name and want to keep their current solution in Office365.
A simple task like changing the tenant name for Office365 would save businesses allot of time.
We desperately need this as well. Please make it possible.
We need this due to the 400 character limit in the cloud storage path for legal files directories. We need this yesterday as we can't save some file online, only in local registry and then syncing doesn't work.

+1 we need this feature very urgent. It's the most important feature we need!
Jannis Kra commented
+1. It would be awesome if this feature would be added. Ideally it would be then still if one can use both tenant names (old and new one) then so that the old links would be still valid for Sharepoint and so on.

This is a highly desirable feature for any business that has a merger, split or change of business name

if it possible to add an alias to the tenant name if changing the name is impossible
Been waiting for a solution for years!

Because this name is embedded in EVERY object and on every endpoint, I would suggest a means to add an additional name and set it as the default. This would give companies plenty of time to transition all those objects and devices to the new name, while still retaining all their data in one tenant.
As companies changes in time, it's a necessity to be able to adapt. Can't ask 38000 people to live in the past when company name changes.
Really need this. Not looking forward to spinning up another tenant and moving mailboxes.

I have been following this post for months. Previously the status was "Working on it", but now this status seems to have disappeared? What is the plans with this?
Have to change the existing tenant name. Migrating from one tenant to another is too risky.
I have two clients who have to change their tenant name. Please fix this limitation.
Well another one in the line of needing tenant name change or alias possibility.
Our company name has also changed and with CRM, website, office 365 and external partner federation it seems almost impossible to change the tenant just to get rid of the old company name.
Hopefully we will soon be able to do this. Besides this issue we are delighted about Azure and Office 365 / Microsoft 365, lots of possibilities but we might be a bit concerned about moving our stuff out there if we have to go through all of this just because of a simple company name change.
If you just want to change OneDrive Explorer site name, you can change Organization name in your O365 profil : https://docs.microsoft.com/fr-fr/office365/admin/manage/change-address-contact-and-more?redirectSourcePath=%252fen-us%252farticle%252fChange-your-organization-s-address-technical-contact-and-more-a36e5a52-4df2-479e-bb97-9e67b8483e10&view=o365-worldwide
It's insane that this is not possible.
Even a monster should be able to change his/her name.
