ILP Colleague Display Name

ILP overwrites the display name in Canvas. I see an option under the app settings to "provision preferred name." However, when setting the preferred name in Colleague it does not appear to be passing back to Canvas but rather still overwriting with legal name. Does anyone have a solution for this? TIA

Yes, we have it updated in all areas, but we wanted the user's name to show the preferred names in all areas of Canvas. Additionally, we have it programmed so that a faculty roster (in Colleague) reflects the preferred name for the continuity of the student's identity and that faculty are not confused by a person on their roster that does not reflect in Canvas. The official transcripts, etc., do reflect the student's legal name. This programming for a student's preferred name was implemented before ILP was used and carried over with the transition to ILP.
