What are the possible options for sending a welcome message when a new hire receives an Office365 account?
Can this be done in Sharepoint? MS Flow?
If not possible in O365, what are the options to send a welcome message when a new hire receives an Outlook mail box?
Any idea is welcome ;-). Tx.

Apart from automating a "welcome" script, you might also consider informing your users when new functionality is rolled out, or simply remind them about some features exist. There's a built-in "wizard" as part of the O365 Admin portal that lets you do that: https://portal.office.com/adminportal/home#/iwwizard

It has been around for a while now, but since it's only exposed in one of the home page "boxes" it gets overlooked I guess. Same for all the setup wizards they have added in the past few months.
@Anne Michels I guess you can take some feedback on this? :) Also, do you guys have any plans to provide automation for these email, as people suggested above?

thanks for your feedback. We're indeed currently working on how to improve the "to user email capabilities" that we have in the admin center and to make this feature more discoverable to admins as well. If you have feedback in general on how you would like to see this fucntionality improve and evolve, please let us know.

Sure - here is my feedback:
Currently the new email templates are on demand only. It would be ideal if those can be triggered to be send for any new employee.
It would also be great if we can customize the templates or create our own that are then sent to new employees automatically.

I agree, this aproach and this ideas could be to be considered regarding to adoption to Office 365.

We also would like the option to email new users, automatically, with a welcome message regarding our IT policies and procedures.

I have not seen any updates on this in the past 4 months. Are there any works in progress??

we had to postpone this work. We're still evaluating it but we don't have an ETA yet.
