How to change user display name on Confluence Team Calendars?

We have some users with the same name (two pairs, actually), looking the calendar has become a little confusing.

We would like to use either last name, username, email, or even a custom property (like calendar-display-name). 

Is it possible to change the displayed name of users on Team Calendars?

Hi Santiago

The name that you see there is the Jira user's Full Name, so if you want them to be different, a Jira global Admin can go into the users section and change them to be unique.

Hope this helps


Thanks for your answer.

Full name is shown only when one person is assigned to the event.

When multiple are assigned it shows only the first name:


Also names comes from Active Directory, so it cannot be changed.
