In our teams feed it only shows the last name of people. What user name property is used for this. Is there a way to change it?

Cheers,

Gunter

Hmm do you have a screenshot? Typically, usernames in Teams are based upon Azure AD.

Would be good to visualise this.

Is this for teams only or other office 365 services as well?
I’d check display name from the admin portal

@Christopher Hoard here's a screenshot. The names Furler and Klassen are the last name of these users.

@adam deltinger Our display name property is based on lastname firstname. In teams conversation, lastname firstname is used. Only in the feed, only the lastname is shown.

Oh! Okay! I believe this is expected! The activity shows the first property of the name, in your case the last name!
AFAIK this has been the case always

Solution
If you flip that around it will show firstname. I believe that’s how the feed works.

Best, Chris

@Christopher Hoard 

Yes, when I change the displayname to firstname lastname, then the first name is used in the feed. So, in the feed the first word from the displayname attribute is used. ;)

Exactly :)
