An administrator must add a nickname to your profile before it can be selected. If you are an administrator, click here to learn how.
Please note that instructors will see your legal name, but all other users will only see your chosen preferred name.
If you already have a nickname attached to your profile, you can toggle use of it in General Settings. First, click your profile picture in the top right to open a dropdown, then click Settings.
This will take you to the General Settings page. From here, you can choose between Legal Name and Nickname in the Display Name category.
This selection will be automatically saved, and will also automatically update your name displayed throughout Notebowl.
