Instructor Q&A

How do I get a nickname in parenthesis?


Some people get their nickname in a parenthesis, like my teacher, who's profile says JAMES BYRNES (Jim). I would like mine to say EMILY FOX (Em), like the other people got, but I can't figure it out.

    Hi Emily,

    It looks like the settings in place at your school don't currently allow a "preferred name" in Schoology. In this case, speaking with a teacher or Schoology administrator at your school may allow you to change the way your name is displayed in Schoology.

    Best wishes,

    Hi.  I'm a teacher at a school, but I think the only one in the school who is trying out Schoology.

    It is very important for me to be able to include a nickname for me and my students (we all have Latin names).

    Is there any way for me as a teacher to add a nicknames setting?
