Go from 365 hybrid to Cloud Only

Hi,
I have a office 365 tenant with AD Sync activated which means password synchronization as well. And also some cloud only mailboxes created beside.

Right now when I need to do some changes to users or shared mailboxes I need to change attributes on the AD server.
I would like to instead of doing that go full cloud only so I can manage everything from the portal.

How do I proceed?

I have found the Powershell script to run: Set-MsolDirSyncEnabled -EnableDirSync $false to go cloud only. Is this just the way to do it or is there any more steps?

But is that it? Will the users see any affects if I do it, do I need to prepare anything for it?
Will it keep the users password it had before I run the script?

Thanks

@Freppys-6680, If you have Password Hash Sync (PHS) enabled, users will directly authenticate from Azure AD and you don't need to perform any additional steps. If you are using Federated or Pass-Through authentication, you would need to first configure PHS. You can then use Set-MsolDirSyncEnabled -EnableDirSync $false cmdlet. After you run this cmdlet, the accounts can be managed directly in cloud.
