Changing your online directory name

By Tim Borfitz on February 28, 2017

A new feature has been rolled out to allow you to select how your name is displayed in the online directory. Your legal last name will always display, but you now have the following options to select how your first name is displayed:

  • Preferred first name only
  • Legal first name only
  • Legal first name and your preferred first name in parenthesis

To select your preference, go My Contact Information on the portal home page and select your directory name format. The online directory will take up to two hours to reflect this change. If you do not change your preference, your legal name and your preferred first name (if one exists) will both show.
