In Canvas, there are two areas for names:

  1. Display Name: Displays in areas where you are collaborating. (e.g.) Discussions, Messages and Comments.
  2. Full Name: Appears in some areas in Canvas. (e.g.) Gradebook, Chat, EPortfolio and integrated applications such as Office365 or TurnItIn UK.

How to change your Display Name: Submit a ticket via the Help button in Canvas.

How to change your Full Name: If your Full Name has legally changed and needs to be updated in Canvas, you will need to change it in Qsis first and this can be requested by contacting Student Registry. Once this is complete, it will automatically update in Canvas in 24-48 hours.
