First Name First in User fields

tips & tricks Oct 10, 2023

While I'm sure having the last name displayed first on a user field can be useful in a variety of circumstances... what if it's just not working for you?

If you prefer to see the first name first, like I do, change it!

The display value setting can be found in the User field's properties.

Simply select "Full Name" to see the first name first.

Try to be consistent throughout your apps.




BONUS TIP: If you need the user name in a Formula - Text field to always display the first name first, you can add "FF" to the formula to get First Name First... like this:

UserToName([Last Modified By],"FF").

Or use "LF" to get Last Name First.
