be happy to help.
Campus Information Services (CIS):
Using New (2017) CIS Outlay:
To add your chosen name to your student profile in CIS, login to CIS. Locate the Tile
that displays your legal name and uNID, click on the area that says "Update Profile,"
click on the pencil icon in the row labelled "Preferred First Name," click on the
button labelled "Edit Preferred First Name" near the greyed-out box containing the
editable space, then enter your name in the now-editable space and click save below.
Changes (seemingly) take 0-1 days to become official. As of this writing, modifying
Preferred First Name does not modify the name rendered on the CIS Profile Tile.
Using Classic Outlay CIS:
To add your chosen name to your student profile in CIS, login to CIS. In the top left,
under Student Profile, click the yellow pencil icon in the “Preferred first name” field. Insert your chosen
name and save.
Display Name in Outlook (UMail):
To update your display name in Outlook, call campus IT Help Desk at 801-581-4000 x 1 and ask that your display name in Outlook be updated. This will change your display
name both in your email and in the University directory.
It may take several hours for the server to update the display name. You can check
to see if the display name has updated, by going to webtools (http://webtools.umail.utah.edu/#/login) and logging in with your university credentials.
Things to keep in mind: Please note, some departments on campus use their own servers, and in these cases
it may take longer for them to update the display name, even if it has been updated
in web tools. Also, if a user has emailed people previously with a different name,
recipients will see the old name displayed even after the display name is updated
unless the email recipients clear their Outlook cache.
To update your name in Canvas, login, then click on the account icon in the top left.
Select profile, then click the edit profile button at the top right of the web page.
Edit your name and save profile. Further Information on Canvas settings can be found
