How Can I Change My Display Name?

Published On: July 11th, 2018·By ·

Background Note:  Teacher Learning Community members receive 24/7 access to our help desk. While the Community is quite user-friendly, we've found that members do benefit from ongoing access to tech support and FAQ guides. 

That's what these Community FAQ articles are about – we're reprinting sections of SimpleK12's help desk as reference to further support members, or inform others of useful Community tips.

How Can I Change My Display Name?

Your Display Name must be unique to you. When you make your request, pick something creative!

You can't change your Display Name yourself inside the Community, but it can be changed. Just create a Support Request and ask for a Display Name Change. Our Support Team will be happy to do this for you. All you need to tell them is what your old display name is, and what you would like your new display name to be.

Keep in mind we have over 700,000 teachers in the Community.  If you have a common name, that Display Name is likely taken and will prevent you from choosing it.  You'll need to use a nickname, or some other name to continue the registration process.  You can add numbers or an ellipsis so your name in order to make it unique, such as JSmith1970.
