As you may already know, since the first release of Office 365, when you create a cloud user account, the system automatically generates a temporary password.

Now, you can also choose to set the user password when you create a new cloud user account.

To do so, just click on the Type password link shown in the Create new user account window

This does not change the fact this is a temporary password and needs to be changed the first time the user logon.
