Change Default Display Name

Question asked by Heather Garcia on Sep 25, 2015

Is there a way to change the default display name for all students automatically in the user profile?

 

For our students, the default display is their first name only, but this makes it difficult for instructors with large courses and multiple sections, who might have three or four students with the same first name.

 

I'm interested, specifically, in knowing the following:

  1. Can we change the default display name for current students?
  2. Is there a way to change it automatically for new students going forward?
  3. Can this be done via the SIS or is there another way to do this?

 

Thanks!
