    I am our Canvas admin and I received a request to change the name display for an instructor in Commons because it was displaying a previous name. Currently, if a name is changed in Canvas, that change does not transfer to Commons. If someone wishes to have their name displayed correctly in Commons, they will have to resubmit their content. My idea is to have that information synced automatically.

     

    I do not use commons, but I would imagine that resubmitting work would not be the best option. Not only because it takes extra time for the instructor, but I am guessing that those who had been using the content might not know about the updated version.commons wrong name
