Teachers and coaches can now add personal nicknames (display names) for students that they coach. Teachers had reported difficulty keeping track of their students’ identities based on their usernames alone, so we added this feature so that teachers can now manage their classes using any names that they want for students.
To add or change a student's display name please follow these steps:
- From your Coach Dashboard select the Students tab
- Click on Edit display name in the right-side of the student's name you want to modify
- The name of the student you selected will become editable
- Click on Save display name to save the changes you've made
Note: This feature is only available in coach reports.
Once you add a display name to a student, that name will be visible throughout your coach reports, including any data exports.
Note: display names are only visible to you; students will continue to see their original username when they use their own accounts. This is in order to protect the student's privacy and to avoid impacting their account login information.
