Schoology Release Notes: August 2016



Use Preferred Name in Schoology

Instructors, Students, and Parents can now choose to display their preferred name if it differs from the official "First Name" option that is automatically used in accounts.

If your organization's System Admin has enabled this permission, you can choose a different name to display wherever your name appears. Users can add and display a Preferred First Name from their Account Settings page, accessed from the dropdown menu next to their name in the upper-right.
