overview-GENERAL INFORMATION and Personal "Preferred Name" qustion

hello @admin , is Kevin again,
I have a problem with the display of Preferred Name. Please see the following picture.
It is different from our field settings and I cannot change it.
First picture is displayed as “preferred name”+“Surname”

but other one looks ok

Hi Kevin,

Well spotted! The label in the first screenshot should actually just be “Name”, as it is preferred name + surname. The purpose of the preferred name field is to capture what the student is called in person. Say you have a student whose first name is “Robert”, but everyone calls them “Bob”, then “Bob” is what goes in the preferred name field.

I’ve adjusted the labeling in the v24 development branch, as per the commit linked below:


I hope this helps!


Thank you so much Ross.
