Dear all, 

Please help to change display name in MS Teams from Russian to English. In portal 

(https://account.microsoft.com/) user name is changed, but in Teams it is still in Russian.
Thank you in advance

@Arman84 To change the display name in Teams you'll want to ensure you are changing the display name field on the user object.  If you've done that exit and relaunch the Teams application to see the change sooner.  Some other sources for name changes within Office 365 (and Teams).  Note that it can take time before the change registers across all solutions.
