Is there a way to expand on what a user can update in Outlook Web Access for Exchange 2013? The additional fields that I want to include as editable would be title and department.
Thanks!

Hi,

I don't think that that is possible. You can change the look, but I don't think you can edit fields.

Maybe you should gather all that info, and simple use some script to update AD accounts?

Regards,
Ivan.

Typically those fields should only be controlled by IT through the direction of HR as a user's role changes.  IMO, there are too many settings (email address policy, address lists, other filters) based on certain conditions that could mess up how the user sends and receives mail, is or isn't archived, etc.

That is not something, as an Exchange admin, I would ever expose to my users to modify.
