Microsoft Adds Sign In Page Branding And Cloud User Self-Service Password Reset For Office 365

Office 365 sign-in branding

Microsoft today announced that they are adding Sign in page and Access Panel company branding and cloud user self-service password reset for Office 365 customers. These two new features were previously only available with an additional Azure Active Directory (AD) Basic, Azure Active Directory (AD) Premium, or Enterprise Mobility Suite subscription.

  • The first feature is company branding for the Sign in page and the Azure AD Access Panel, where users select a software as a service (SaaS) application to sign in to. Now, Office 365 customers can customize the Sign in page and Access Panel with the text, color and images of their choosing. This is in addition to the Office 365 tenant branding that can be used to apply custom text, color and images for the Office 365 service as shown after the user is signed in.
  • The second feature is the self-service password reset, which allows a user to reset their password should they forget it, using pre-arranged alternate personal information. First, the admin for the tenant must enable the tenant for user password reset. Next, each user must configure alternate personal information in the Office 365 portal.
