We are currently migrating to Office365 and realized that there isn't an easy way to bring in custom attributes for a user, we had a custom solution on the on-prem SP2010 and added custom attributes in MySite for people to search for people on these attributes, for example - schools, certifications, etc.
any plans of Microsoft to enable this in future?

Hi Ronnie, are you talking about the ability to add custom user profile properties in O365 ?

You can already add custom properties via SharePoint Admin on O365. You want to be able to do it via PowerShell or CSOM ?

Hi Ronnie, when migrating the custom Profile Properties from On-Prem to SPO, you could use the Profile Properties Update API for SharePoint Online. Check out this blog post for more information: Introducing Bulk UPA Custom Profile Properties Update API for SharePoint Online

Vlad, is this still the best alternative for custom Attributes from on prem AD to Azure AD (SharePoint UserProfiles)?
