Provide Language Choice for Office 365 for synchronized users
My company has over 250,000 users that are spread across 40 countries in the world. As part of our journey to Office 365 we have performed a syncronization with Azure AD.
During this process we have many users who are using a different language within their country than that of the country they are assigned. An example is English users who are working from Belgium or the Netherlands.
By default what is happening is the users are being given the language for the country they are in as their default. They are not given the option to change this.
Outside of AD Synchronized accounts there is an option for the user to change their Office 365 Language. This is not available for our users.
The only option is for on premises administrators to use ADSI edit and add a preferred language for the user. This is burdensome and removes the power from the user.
Our ask is for the "Preferred Language" to be a setting that becomes available for users to set in Office 365 for Synchronzied accounts the same way it is for stand alone accounts as seen in this article: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/change-your-personal-language-and-region-settings-caa1fccc-bcdb-42f3-9e5b-45957647ffd7
This would then allow users to set their language themselves and remove admin overhead and improve the user use and experience of Office 365 services.
