Allowing for "Preferred Name" field to sync with Azure AD

Please please PLEASE add a preferred name field that can sync with Azure AD. My company syncs our Wrike accounts with AD and so every time it does, it pulls in my legal first name as my name in Wrike (which is very different from the name I go by). The only override is to submit a ticket to my company helpdesk to manually change my first name in Wrike (since I don't have permissions), but then it changes back the first time the system syncs with AD. It's EXTREMELY frustrating - your name is your identity and to be forced to use a different name is not fun. And it's extremely confusing for other people who don't recognize my name and for team members trying to find and tag me.
