UW-Madison Zoom - Change your display name (including pronouns)
At the moment, your display name is tied to your MyUW Name in Use.
The default format Zoom will use for your display name will be in the form of "FIRST MIDDLE LAST". If you have a Name in Use set, it will instead use your Name in Use for your Zoom name.
If you do not have a Name in Use set or want to modify it, use the following instructions to update your Name in Use using the MyUW Personal Information module.
- Important: You will need to sign out (log out) of any Zoom client and sign back in for your modified Name in Use to appear within Zoom client you are using - this may require an overnight sync. Learn more on how to sign into your UW-Madison Zoom account via web/desktop clients.
- If you modify your Name in Use within MyUW, this will also change your name in many other UW-Madison applications (e.g. MyUW, Office 365, etc.).
- You now have the ability to set pronouns for your account - learn more. Important: You must be using version 5.7.0 or higher for pronouns to be visible when using the desktop client.
