Profile fields

For more information about the names of profile fields in your digital workplace, see the Profile fields reference table. While any profile fields could potentially be mapped to display in the contact card, many of these fields on the contact card have identifier-specific iconography. 

Field visibility

Fields may not appear on a users contact card due to the following reasons:

  • They do not have a value for the mapped profile field.
  • Their profile field privacy settings prevent the field from being shown.

In addition to these, the MS Teams icon and link will not appear if the Avatar option in General Settings is not enabled.
