2586193 - Presentation : Display format of Successor Names in live slide


When a user tries to print a slide from the ‘Presentations’ module that has successors on it, the successor names appear in the format of FIRST NAME, INITIAL OF LAST NAME (i.e. John Smith = JOHN S). Can this be changed to be either their full name (John Smith), or their initial & their last name (i.e. J. Smith)?

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Presentations Module.
  2. Create a live slide that contains positions and successors (i.e. Succession Org Chart, Position Tile).
  3. Select 'Print Preview'.
  4. Names of successors will appear as 'FIRST NAME, INITIAL OF LAST NAME' (i.e. John Smith = John S).


As per the current product design, we can not change the format of the names that are displayed in Presentations module live slide that contains positions and successors. The names will be displayed in the default format FIRST NAME, INITIAL OF LAST NAME.
