why can't Teams change diskplay name?(as nickname, remark)

Frequent Contributor

as SFB could rename user's contact, why Teams can't?

if you have 10 mohammad(even in the same OU), it will be easier to give them a tag

Not currently available. But there is a feedback for this here


Allow user to rename contacts name in teams · Community (microsoft.com)


Would recommend to both vote up and follow in order to be notified if Microsoft pick this up.


Hope that answers your question 


Best, Chris

Thank you, Chris
there is a lot of topics for this in feedbackportal (but not a lot of people...)
maybe you can share the idea why is this deprecated?
besides "how", I'm interested in "why" at the same time
