Hello All,

 

I'm brand new to Teams Classes and I'm trying to figure out how to give students the option of hiding their name or assigning their own name rather than revealing their full first and last name automatically.  I haven't seen a setting yet and would love some help with this.

I don't know the EDU version of Teams, but assume that the tenant admin can edit the displayname of a user to show whatever they want it to be. However, this setting applies everywhere within  a tenant and isn't specific to a single group or team. I don't think there is a way to do this for a specific team.
