Manage User Profiles At The SharePoint Admin Center on Office 365


Welcome to an article on how to Manage User Profiles at the SharePoint Admin Center on Office 365. Sharing has always been an important part of SharePoint. Here in this article, we will see what are the options available for us to Manage User Profiles at the SharePoint Admin Center.

To see that, you need to be a tenant admin. If you are, let’s see how we can do it,

  • Click on the left corner of your SharePoint site to view the apps.


  • Click on Admin.

  • You will come to the “SharePoint admin center”.


  • Select user profiles on the left navigation.


Under People click on ‘Manage User Profiles’,

You can use this section to manage or create or remove user profiles in your site.


It’s like you are creating an account on one of the social sites which will allow you to make the user access to those SharePoint sites you want them to.

The only difference is that here not the user but the admin creates the profile.

Let’s see what it has.


1. New Profile

Click on the ‘New Profile’ and you will see a form which opens below where you need to fill in all the details here with all personal and official details like a social site as I told you.

So fill in all the details and create a profile of a user so that you can provide them access on the Office 365 SharePoint sites.





2. Delete You can delete user profiles only from here if you have a tenant level of access.

3. Manage Sub-types Use this page to manage sub types for profiles.


4. New Sub-types Provide a name to create sub types by providing a name and the display name for sub- type.

5. Remove Existing Sub-types Here you can choose to remove the existing sub types.


Once you have sub types, you will be able to view them here and you can choose it from this drop down.
