StaffMail display name

A new enhancement to the LGfL StaffMail system makes it possible to control the format of the display name presented in outbound emails and address books.  The current options are:

<Legal First Name> <Legal Last Name>  (this is the default setting)
<Title> <Legal First Name> <Legal Last Name>
<Title> <Initial of Legal First Name> <Legal Last Name>
<Title> <Legal Last Name>
<Initial of Legal First Name> <Legal Last Name>
<Legal Last Name>
<Legal Last Name>, <Legal First Name>
<Preferred First Name> <Preferred Last Name>
<Title> <Preferred First Name> <Preferred Last Name>
<Title> <Initial of Preferred First Name> <Preferred Last Name>
<Title> <Preferred Last Name>
<Initial of Preferred First Name> <Preferred Last Name>
<Preferred Last Name>
<Preferred Last Name>, <Preferred First Name>

Each LA can choose its own preferred format, and by default this option will apply to users in all schools within that LA.  Additionally, though, each school can pick its own preferred format (and this will override the LA setting, if in place).

Once a change is made to the school or LA policy, the revised display name will take effect for a StaffMail user whenever a modification is made to the person’s USO account.  This modification might be a password change (via the ‘key’ icon at https://support.lgfl.org.uk/) or an update to the user’s preferred names (through the My Account… Account details page within the secure area of the support site).
