O365 Display Name Change

Friday, Feb. 19 OIT will change users’ Microsoft O365 display names to appear as Firstname Lastname. Currently O365 display names show as Lastname, Firstname.

This change will adopt the preferred names set in the UA Common Directory, and will overwrite some previously set directory values if individuals have customized the display name of an email account.

The change may take time to refresh on all O365 apps (Outlook, Teams). OIT is performing this change to make the O365 environment more user friendly, and consistent with other campus services.
