Hello,
Is it possible to hide the works with Information in the organization-tab on the Office 365 user profile cards?
And knows somebody how the works with Information will generated?
FYI: I disabled OfficeGraph in the SharePoint AdminCenter.

Thx

Hmm, I believe this information is pulled from the manager attribute

@adam deltingernot realy. On my customer the 'manager attribute' is empty or not maintained. So I assume that the 'works with' info will generated by some other O365 magic. And by my customer is not desired to see who works with whom ;)

AFAIK, there is not currently a way to customize the people card in Office 365
Has this been changed?

Can "works with" information be removed?
That page only talks about adding additional attributes, not about hiding or removing unwanted information.
AFAIK the people cards can only be customized by adding additional attributes but not by deleting the defaults.

Maybe it can be done by disabling the item insights for the entire organization or only for some user groups: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/insights-customize-item-insights-privacy

I'll give it a try and get back here to let you know the result

@RafaelVarela 

 

Hi Rafael,

 

do you already have a result?

 

I've got the same problem and can't find anything regarding this topic...

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Greetings

Sorry for the delay.

Today I've just disabled the item insights for a group to test the results/consequences on a limited scope but these changes can take up to 24 hours to be applied across all Microsoft 365.

I hope I will provide you with more information in a couple days.
Hi, I am facing the same problem and is curious about the results of your test, especially since the test takes a week to perform. Any info to share with us?

@Raymond_666(cc/Frichtr) No, we haven't noticed any changes so far. I'm afraid I'll have to open a support case, at least I will hopefully have an official answer from Microsoft.

I'll keep you informed.

 

 

Thanks for the reply.
Have been in contact with Premier support, Microsoft Privacy and some other parts of Microsoft, no luck. So far.... To be continued.

Unfortunately Microsoft Tech Support told me that it is not possible to hide or delete any property on the contact card in SharePoint Online / Delve. They also said that the "Works with" feature cannot be changed. Even through the privacy of the statistics, we cannot hide attributes with information from the profile card.

 

I asked them to consider escalating the issue to be implemented as a future enhancement.
