When I create a new card and allocate a member to the card I see a small circle with the first letter of their first name on the card in the bottom right corner. Can this be changed to use the first letter and their first name and the first letter of their second so it shows 2 characters? It's impossible to know who has been assigned the card with just 1 letter. I have 5 cards with the letter J assigned. Yes if I hover over it I can see the person, but I don't want to do that all the time.
Hi @Jim Kariotis and welcome to the community,
Usually, Atlassian accounts takes the name and last name and place both first letters on the avatar, if an image in not set. Can you please check the names on the profiles of these users?
The members I have added are not real addresses if that matters. I don't want to invite anyone but I just want to keep track of cards and who is assigned to what.
I just made up the email, eg. John.Smith@1234.com and added them as members.
Not sure if that matters, but I would expect to still see the 2 characters for each member.
@Jim Kariotis understood. But these addresses are (would be) connected to an Atlassian account which by default would use the email address as a name. So in the above case that would be just "J". But if you could edit one of these accounts and enter a first and last name, you would see it (most likely) on the card.
When you add a member to a card make sure to add their full name with a space between:
Doing that will result in having an avatar with both the first letters:
Failing to do so, or placing their email as their full name will result in a single letter avatar:
You have to create XX "fake" email atlassian accounts and setup the pictures yourself. This comes with how Atlassian's ids work. E.g. the profile pic of me is set on my atlassian account and it is displayed on all atlassian products (+ this community).
