OfficialName or Username display request


It is possible for user titles to be displayed with their usernames or Official most preferably?
Because official name is used in all documents in our school and we don’t use initials or preferred names and so its difficult for us to find the users from the lists or combo boxes.


Hi again,

While waiting for a response for my request, i came up with a solution.
Perhaps not recommended and not the best.

This is what it did.
I copied the officialName to preferredName of all users.
Edited 2 php files to format users with just preferredName.
Used the string replacement to display preferredName as Fullname.

For combo boxes and drop downs.

For user format.

For String replacement.

If you have a better solution, please share.
