User Names

In the Gantt view, the Assignee column shows first initial last name, so Mike Smith and Mary Smith both show up as M. Smith. Confusing. There should be a way to toggle between first and last full names, first only, etc.

To make things even more confusing, the assignee name on the Gantt chart bar shows the opposite...Mike S. and Mary S. So when searching through a complex chart you have to be thinking "Mary" if your eyes are on the bars, and "Smith" when your eyes are on the column. Makes no sense.

Please add flexibility for these locations where names show...and make them show the same way.

Adding a three initials option could also help in this.

Sometimes I wonder if Wrike team uses Wrike for their own product management.

I support this request. There absolutely should be a way for the Wrike account owner to decide how their team's/employee's user names are displayed.

We have a small team and would prefer to have only our first names displayed throughout Wrike.

Im not sure if there has been any progress on this but It would be extremally helpful. I now how 2 Scott M's on my team and it is getting confusing as to which one is assigned what. It would be nice to be able to edit their display name in some fashion.
