Change display name

Jump to solution

Hi there,

I just found that my original settings were changed without my editing. I tried to edit my display name which I've used so far, but I could not find any option to edit my name. The only two options I could change are language and time zone. Could you please solve this issue? Thank you!

Most likely the local Canvas admin for your university has disabled students' ability to edit their names on their own because they are using a third-party application to gather enrollments and populate Canvas courses with users, and they are managing student names on that program. Please reach out directly to the tech support or IT Desk for your school to request a name change.
