Preferred Name

    We would love the ability to either set the system to use a preferred name field OR allow the users to choose whether they want to use their real neame or preferred name. We have many students from other non-English speaking countries who have taken on an English name while studying at our institution or even users who go by their second name or a shortened version of their name.

    It would be great if there was a setting to use the preferred name if it exists or allow the users to choose the name they want to use, that would be great.

    Note that we would want to be able to lock these to an officially registered preferred name from the student information system or hr system in the case of staff.
