Advance wishes for V18.
In attendance,Mark book, Behavior, Gibbon is currently showing Names of students twice. We want to only display the official names. Please help us to achieve this,

  • Hi Ghulam,

    Much of Gibbon displays the student's name as: Preferred Name + Surname. Is it possible that the student's full name has been entered in the preferred name field? This might cause it to appear twice. Otherwise, a screenshot (with any personal details obscured) may be helpful to illustrate what you're seeing.
  • Dear Sandra,

    Yes we have student full name in the proffered Name field. and we have numeric usernames so we don't need automated usernames. Therefore we want only to display students official name. instead of the names as

    for example
    Showing
    ABDUL REHMAN NADEEM ABDUL REHMAN NADEEM
    but it should be
    ABDUL REHMAN NADEEM

    Ahmad AHMAD MUSTAFVI should be AHMAD MUSTAFVI
    Rehman Sarwar MUHAMMAD REHMAN SARWAR should be MUHAMMAD REHMAN SARWAR

    Hope these examples make it clear

    Best Regards,
  • Hi Ghulam, in this case I would put ABDUL REHMAN as the preferredName and then NADEEM as the surname, and it should output how you want. officialName is seldom used in Gibbon, only when producing reports, etc. Most the time we use preferredName surname, or surname, preferredName. Thanks, Ross.
