Does anyone have a custom script that will allow me to hide an option on the profile edit page for students? I'm trying to allow them to only change their display name, but not the full name that is assigned via the SIS.
I know that there is a Feature Idea in product radar stage about this specifically, but I was just wondering if anyone had a work around right now.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
Hope this helps!
I don't have any great answers except to say; I wish there were an option to allow people to change just their display name.
Having said that I do have a possible work around. Our school uses PeopleSoft as our SIS and it also has some soft of preferred name field. I don't the rules in PeopleSoft about who gets to update that field or how, but we use it to populate the Display name in Canvas through our SIS uploads. So presumably a student (or teacher) can update the name in our SIS and it propagates to Canvas via our SIS nightly feeds.
