New feature: set your account’s display name

Posted by Adrian Holovaty on July 13, 2018

Every account on Soundslice has a username — but usernames are...well, username-y. They can’t contain spaces, they’re short, and they need to be unique across our site. Today we’re giving you a second way of naming yourself on Soundslice: a “display name.”

In your account settings, you can now set a “display name” for yourself. You can use that to write your full name, or your organization name, or whatever you’d like — with or without spaces.

Your display name will appear on your Soundslice channel (example) and in any courses you’ve created. We’ll likely start using the display name in other places soon, too.
