Display name options for teachers & parents

Firefly offers options for how teachers' and parents' names are displayed. We can set these up for you during the MIS integration.

Teachers

By default, Firefly displays teachers' names as <firstname> <surname>, e.g. John Smith.

Alternatively, teachers can be set up to display as <title> <first-initial> <surname>, e.g. Mr J Smith.

The option to change teachers' display names is available to cloud hosted schools. Locally hosted schools will show the AD "display name" field.

Parents

By default, Firefly displays parents' names as <firstname> <surname>, e.g. John Smith.

Parents can be set up to display as <title> <first-initial> <surname>, e.g. Mr J Smith.

You can find more details about how to make the changes here or alternatively,  contact our support team to have these settings changed.
