Custom Form Person/Group Field showing strangely: Showing Email Address string instead of name

Occasional Contributor

Good morning,

I have made a custom form for a sharepoint list. There are a handful of 'Person or Group' fields. However when viewing the custom form, they don't show the name, they show a string of information which includes the actual email address. 


i:0#.f|membership|email address removed for privacy reasons


Is there a way to show the name like it does in the standard form view?

Anyone? I still can't figure out how to have it show the display name when using the custom form rather than the string shown above.

I was finally able to determine this can be changed editing the Fields on the properties section of the card once you click the combo box. From there you change the value to DisplayName.
