People Webpart doesn't show the pictures

Iron Contributor

Hello guys,


I want to ask you something, I have a SharePoint site integrated with my 365 platform. In the site I use the Webpart People to add new hires, I mean, it's like a  Welcome aboard..


In the user profile in 365 platform, I add the user's picture but in the WebPart the picture is not shown.


There seems to be a synchronization problem.


Do you have any idea how to solve it?


Thanks in advance,

I just looked into this yesterday for the same reason.  Here's a link to info on the User Profile sync process. 


What gets synced right away is limited for SharePoint (unlike other things like Teams).  The Picture field does not get synced right away.  It happens on a later, irregular sync that happens.

I did find a couple of links to PowerShell scripts to force a User Profile update for that field. 

It would be nice if they would fix this...
