Changing Personal Information

Updating Personal Information in the Office 365 Portal

In the Microsoft Office 365 Portal, any user, not just company administrators, can change personal settings. This includes information such as organization address and phone, software downloads, password changes, contact preferences, language and more.

Change personal password

If you would like to change the password on your account, go to the Office 365 setting section in the Microsoft Office 365 Portal. Any user, not just company administrators, can change their password.

1.  In the Office 365 Settings page, click password. Your account will immediately ask you to sign into your account again as a security precaution.

2.  After you sign back into your account, type your old password in once, then your new password twice, then click save.

NOTE: Global or Password Admins can reset the passwords for all ‘users’ accounts. Resetting a password provides a temporary password. The user would sign into the Microsoft Office 365 Portal using their username (email address) and temporary password. At that point, the user would immediately set the password to what they want.

Tip! To manage expired passwords in the Office 365 portal, please refer to our blog: Managing User Password Expiration in Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online.
