Custom Views Makes for Easier User Management – Microsoft Online Portal

Managing a small amount of users in the MOP (Microsoft Online Portal) can be very simple. It’s when you get to have hundreds or thousands of accounts that things get crazy. Microsoft has done a great job of letting you get control over this and create custom views or filters to weed out the users that you don’t need to see.

Just above the list of Users you will see a “View:” drop down menu. Here is where you can select, create, edit and delete the views for the user accounts.

By default Microsoft has included a number of useful filters.


We can also take this one step further and create our own custom filter to create a view that works for us. This is done simply by selecting “New view”

In the example below, I created a view of Synchronized users with an active license.


Selecting this view shows the results of the filters that we saved.

    Very helpful – thank you. I am wondering why there would be a 50 view limit, however. I am trying to create custom views by department, and we have more than 50 departments.
