Where does full student name show instead of display name?

From time to time, we have students for whom the display name and Full Name/Sortable Name need to be different. Sometimes it's a domestic violence issue, sometimes other things. We allow students to change display name, so they can do what they need to with that.


My question is this:

What sections of Canvas, or related tools, show Display Name, and which use the full system name? In other words, is Full Name used in, say, Peer review, or maybe Conversations, in a way that other students would see it? Or do both of those systems work with system name? I've got word from support that Full Name will show in People or Groups... anything else?


I'm particularly concerned about those tools that would be visible to other students in the class.
