E-mail Notifications

Jump to solution

So here's a question...  when I get e-mail notifications from Jive about certain things that people have done in the Community (replied, marked as helpful, etc.), those e-mails display as coming from, I think, the person's user name?  For example, in my e-mail inbox, whenever  @kona ​ does something, it always shows as "kona" in my Inbox.  But other people have what appears to be their login ID (example: jdoe) or an ID number that has been assigned to them.

Is this true for others, too?  Part of me would rather see the person's full name listed when it comes across in my e-mail, but the other part of me wants to keep things "as is" because I know these e-mails are coming from the new 2.0 Community.

 @chofer ​ my username is *kona* - just kona - ex: kona@richland.edu

This is one of the few advantage of having a unique name - you only need to use your first name in most situations. It also helped to marry our College's Internet Systems Specialist - I got my email address/username as a wedding gift. Gotta love a guy who really knows what's important to his lady. Smiley Wink

Smiley Happy Makes sense!  So in my e-mail inbox, I see something like this:

That's where I was thinking having the actual name of the person listed might be helpful?  But again, seeing e-mails coming through like this helps me know which are from Jive and which are from our staff here at MPTC.
