    These votes would be better suited on a topic that better explains the issue. This topic has most votes regarding the initials, but doesn't explain much. Wish MS could combine request as once you put all the different requests that are basically asking for the same things this is a pretty hot topic.

    Adding my notes from other one:

    This is very annoying. Our organization is affected by this also. We have display names "Last, First" and the initials in the image show as "LF". I agree it should follow this progression:
    1) Does account have First Name (GivenName) and Last Name (SurName)? if yes use those for initials.
    2) Does DisplayName have a comma (,) that is not a followed by a Jr., Sr., II, III, IV, etc? If so, assume it is "Last, First" format and create initials accordingly.
    3) If neither of above exist, if there are three words then assume " First Middle Last" format and create initials with "FML".
    4) If none of above, and two words assume "First Last" format and create initials accordingly, "FL".

    Added bonus, maybe allow user to specify what to display. This way we can fix account that are for example "IT Department" to not be "ID", but rather "IT" and leave the "D" out entirely.

    This definitely needs to be done. My goodness, I just went to set up a Shared mailbox and the switch was missing! I couldn't believe it. -Equipment and -Room are there, but not -Shared ...CRAZY! Now I have to do the dance Juho mentioned, as you can't flip to a Shared mailbox in O365 or it will revert back. See Microsoft article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2710029/shared-mailboxes-are-unexpectedly-converted-to-user-mailboxes-after-directory-synchronization-runs-in-an-exchange-hybrid-deployment

    As David mentioned, you may want to transfer your votes to the more highly voted request which is the very same thing...

    We just went through this from Live@Edu and after many migrations we wanted to have our real name and not a dev name. This was a royal pain in the rear. No one at Microsoft could really walk us through making changes and they wanted us to coordinate the change ourselves by calling each different team in O365 which is crazy.

    We did complete the change by creating a new tenant and disconnecting things, moving them, and bringing them back up. It was in no fashion nearly that simple, as we were doing this for weeks!

    This really shouldn't be all that difficult to do from the Microsoft side of things, but without it being available it is a nightmare for clients.
