Environment

-Free version of Microsoft Teams

-Microsoft 365 Family.  I don't have 365 Business Standard yet, and therefore no Admin Panel

 

Scenario

-Created a Team, named after a client's name. If I work with many individuals, I would think that naming a team after the client's name would be OK.
-Sent an invite to the client by entering their email address
-Client responds to email, creates a MS-Teams account

Issue

-Within the team, I select "Manage Team"
-I see myself in there - Firstname and Lastname and my email address
-But... the new member has - first part of email address for the name and then their email address
-Because their "Name" is the first part of email address, I somehow have to remember this when doing searches
-When going into Chat, I could only do a search of the first part of email address, because that's technically their name
-So.....
-Q: How do I rename the user's name after the fact?

 

Thanks.

Paul
