Teachers and coaches can now add personal nicknames (display names) for their students. Teachers had reported some difficulty with keeping track of their students’ identities based on their usernames alone, so we've added this feature to give teachers the ability to manage their classes using any names ths.
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 on the right side of the student's name that 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. Your students will continue to see their original username when they use their own accounts. This is to better protect the student's privacy and to avoid impacting their account login information.
