Is there a way to edit user accounts and groups in Office 365 that are synced from an on premise AD domain controller?

We have a client who use 365 and their user accounts are synced but as expected they can only edit accounts created in Office 365.

They have been set up for a couple of years though, has there been any advances that would allow two way editing, ie ability to amend user accounts/reset passwords/update DL that would created on premise?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No. it's still one-way only. Although they promised an update on that front at Ignite last year, no timeframes were specified, so dont hold your breath.

That was what I thought, we have a client who claims we promised that he would be able to manage everything in 365 which up until now I knew wasnt possible with their on premise domain controllers.

There is a caveat.  You can disable directory synchronization, remove AAD Connect and then remove Exchange.  That should permit the client to "be able to manage everything in 365".

Yeah but then their PC logins wouldnt tie up with email/sharepoint via explorer etc. Would get messy.

Their user names would essentially be the same, however their O365 passwords would change separately from their domain passwords.  For me, it's really a non-issue.
