Microsoft recently replaced the default profile page, person.aspx, to personimmersive.aspx in SharePoint Online. After this I no longer can decide which properties that will show up on the profile for the user. Usually it was just to select "Show in the profile properties section of the user's profile page" and the property would show up in the profile page. Can anyone else replicate or is it just me that having a bad Monday?
Yes,You can decide which properties will show up on the profile for the user. The issue on the new personimmersive.aspx page has been resolved. When accessing this page, you can click MORE INFORMATION to display additional properties. Refer:http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/154/t/238397.aspx
It seems that someone at least in Microsoft agrees with my sentiment that it was an appalling change because the change has now been undone!
The "About" section appears in the right-hand column again of our tenancy. For reference, the information shown is controlled by editing the user properties in the SharePoint Admin site.
It looks like the PersonImmersive page is still changing since I now get an error if I try (with global admin privalages) to edit the page. A few weeks ago when the change you mentioned happened, I could still edit part of the page. The change to the Organisation Browser on that page has also changed again!
