Anyone having issues trying to merge users in the new course/people view? I go to use the merge function, but I can't bring up another name.
We only have the new course/people view turned on in beta, but I am seeing the same issue you're seeing. "Find a User" isn't working, only entering a user ID works. You should definitely put it a support ticket.
We are also having trouble with the new course search. Some courses are not showing up unless you click the "Hide courses without students" checkbox - even though they have students. We reported it to Canvas Support. It is definitely still a little buggy.
So y'all know, I did put in a support ticket, and this is a known bug in the new course/people beta view. They promise to fix it soon. I love the new view, but oh, the joys of beta...
