    Office 365 change profile picture

    Simple question, but I couldn't find an answer! How do I change someone's profile picture from the admin portal?

    A couple of our students have changed theirs profile pictures to something inappropriate and I want to be able to fix it quickly.

    How about resetting their password, and then logging on to change it back.

    I've gotten around the issue altogether by creating a new OWA Policy to restrict the settings they can access for profiles etc.
    I'm hoping to get round to settings a generic picture in the local AD accounts and they get that uploaded when DirSync runs

    Unfortunately I have been asked to change this for all students and been given a file with 1,000 photos!

    Not really practical changing each one individually.

    Well your only other option is to set it in the AD, and if your using DirSync force an upload. It can take up to 24 hours for the picture to appear in the outlook address book according to other sources.
    There is not a way to set them from the admin portal or via powershell from what I can see =/
