Naming Display of Student, Teachers and Staff
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,
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.
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
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
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
. Thanks, Ross.
