Tech Tip of the Week: Changing your Name in Zoom

If you chose to change your preferred name in Self Service, your preferred name will populate to your Illinois Zoom account. However, if you only want to change your name in Zoom or you want to add your preferred pronouns, please follow these steps:

  2. Click on Profile in the left sidebar area.
  3. Your name should be listed at the top, and to the far right there should be an Edit button. Click on Edit.
  4. Under Display Name, type your preferred name. This is the name people will see when you are in a Zoom meeting with them.
    1. NOTE: You can also add your preferred pronouns in this space as well.
  5. Then click Save Changes.
