Azure Functions as timer job equivalents in SP Online (blog.sharedove.com)
Traditional SharePoint developers knew very well how to handle daemons in their daily work: Timer Jobs were the way to go. Microsoft was very specific in their guidance and documentation. We used (and sometimes misused!), Timer Jobs for all different sort of situations – from cleanup jobs, async data manipulation (sic!), to getting external data into the SharePoint context. Even with all the problems that timer jobs had, we learned to live with it, and to use them to our advantage.
How to grant the Everyone claim to external users in Office 365 (support.microsoft.com)

By default, content that is granted permissions to these groups will be visible only to your organization's users.
SharePoint: The complete guide to user profile cleanup – Part 1 (blogs.technet.microsoft.com)
Enable renaming the site collection URLs (sharepoint.uservoice.com)
Currently the site collection URLs are fixed as https://tenant.sharepoint.com and cannot be changed. This does not fit with flexible cloud-based solutions - business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, rebranding etc). While it may not be possible to change it so that entirely custom domains are used (eg contoso.com, instead of sharepoint.com), it must be possible to allow the sub-domain to be changed (eg. newtenant.sharepoint.com)? Please? Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Onedrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.
