Preferred name to appear in Microsoft Teams

2 September 2021

Your preferred name will soon be displayed in Microsoft Teams meetings. Thus far only your surname, initials and any prefixes have been displayed. As of 13 September, your preferred name, as listed in SAP, will be added. 

For example: if your full name is Jan Peter de Vries and your preferred name is Jan, this will be displayed in Teams as follows: Vries, J.P. de (Jan) 

If you want a different name to be displayed in Microsoft Teams than your preferred name in SAP, send an email to the helpdesk or contact the helpdesk through the helpdesk portal on the staff members website.
