  • Nico,
    Thanks for the clarification regarding the SharePoint logo NOT showing up in the SharePoint $5.00/Mo subscription I have. I understand now.

  • Hi Nico,

    Is it possible to run multiple Sharepoint online farms under a single tenant in O365?

    If yes, is there any article or steps that would help me to understand the different scenario!!!!

    Thanks in advance

    • No, you get 1 SharePoint Online “farm” for each Office 365 tenant. However, you can create multiple site collections.

  • Hi ,
    why does sharepoint people picker not showing active and inactive users?

    Scenario: have user in sharepoint site (User Information list) Active directory deleted (Orphaned User) not showing in sharepoint People picker?

    Please help me on this.

    Thanks in Advance…

    • Hi Shafi,

      So you are saying the user was deleted from Active Directory? In that case the people picker won’t show this user, as the user will not be able to log in anyway.
      Assigning permissions to this object would be useless.
