Make it possible to change the 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.
The functionality to make it possible to change the name of an O365 tenant, especially with Sharepoint Online in mind, is being planned. There is no ETA at this time though.

Any update on this feature?

I wish I could just change the name, or "merge" or reuse/re-assign the tenant url from one of my existing tenants....

Would love to be included in the beta if possible. We are just about to launch SharePoint Online and I assumed a custom domain was possible. Changing our Tenant name would help a little...

Any update on this? Unfortunately, I will not be able to wait until MS release this feature. I will need to migrate tenant to tenant manually.

It would be nice to have the rename tenant option. We are looking at using Alt Domain ID https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/operations/configuring-alternate-login-id to help mostly with appearance of logging into O365 with the new brand Company name, but behind the scene it's still all the old Company stuff.
If rename tenant becomes available, and we implement Alt Domain Login - will there be a conflict?
Any update on this? Very silly that we can't do this - need flexibility in this day and age!
We need this urgently!

As a MSP we could definitely use this feature for our clients. When helping clients find business value in all their M365 products you need to have a workable tenant.onmicrosoft.com name.
When we opened our O365 account we used the then chosen.onmicrosoft.com .
Since then added our own company domains, but cannot change the tenant and especially sharepoint url to a more company approriate name and basically stuck with default.onmicrosoft.com or told to migrate everything.
Surely this should be top priority with a more current update than March?

It is very common in our world to rename company. Why it is not possible in digital world too? Please, keep in mind that original tenant name can be under restriction of authority rights, copyrights, trade marks to which new company does not hold any priviledges.
In 2020 Microsoft is forcing IT administrator manually to migrage everything from working 365 tenant to new one? Inside its own services. Noone will believe in that.
Any chance of joining the beta? We are starting the move to Office 365 and it would be good to get our tenant name corrected before getting too far into the process.

Is there any way to participate in the private preview?

No update since March? Is there any way to participate in the private preview?
Is there any way to test this? Beta?
Is there a Beta trial we could register? We need to change the sharepoint domain due to legal and geographical reasons. This will be a great help if we could participate on trials and tests to get it done asap. Thanks!

Facing this issue too. Our partner decided to migrate us to a technical tenant name and there is no way to change it.
Do not hesitate to enroll me in the beta. Thanks

Hi Microsoft, I work for an MSP and have had several enquires about this of late. Any update on when this will be available?
Any update about this feature? A way to enter the private preview would be great.
I've got a few orgs with hundreds and thousands of users that will appreciate the tenant id change in their SPO. Some *should* be easier since they use SPO for nothing critical.
Hi there, we are also interested in this feature.
Just one more reason to never implement Sharepoint for a company intranet.
