Change how names are displayed
You can change how other members’ names display for you in Slack. This setting is for your eyes only — every member of your workspace can choose their own preference from these options:
Show display names in conversations and full names everywhere else
- Just show display names
Set your preference
- From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
Select Messages & media.
- Under Names, choose how you’d like to see members’ names.
- Tap You at the bottom of your screen.
- Tap Preferences.
- Tap Advanced.
- Tap the toggle next to Display Full Names on or off.
Note: This preference isn't available on the Slack app for Android.
