Change the Display Name in Google Groups

Posted by in IT

By default, the groups shows your user name (e.g. the first part from your email address — before the @ symbol). To change this to show your full name (if you want it), follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the group’s name
  2. Click on Members (on the right on my screen)
  3. Click on your user change link
  4. Set whatever you want on your display name and hit Save. You can also link to your G+ profile and it’ll show your picture and G+ display name.

Simple once you know it, but odd if you don’t 🙂
