Is it possible to have the users name in custom events types displayed in the calendar?


Hi all,


I would like to have the user name displayed for all event types in a calendar. Up to now the users name will only be displayed in the standard event types (screenshot in green and orange) but not for custom event types (screenshot blue) as you can see in the attached screenshot.

Best result for me would be, if for every event the users name and the event type would be automatically displayed in the calendar.

Best Regards

Maybe it's the version that you're on?  Or maybe you're not entering the person's name in the "Who" field for the custom event?

I see names on every kind of event, and in every view except the list view, but the user's avatar does appear there.

It looks like you're showing timeline, and I can see names for custom event types in the timeline view.
