I would like to change my name from Mary to Jo. No one knows me as Mary Fraley and that is what shows up in my profile and am unable to change it.
This is being pulled from the employee database. I'll contact you offline with more information. Thanks!
Timothy Hales (ESRI staff/GeoNet Guru) can probably help you with this.
Chris Donohue, GISP
The profile name that is displayed in GeoNet is linked from your esri global account, so to change it in GeoNet you have to make the change in your esri global account.
Thanks that was the trick!
Actually that didn't fix it, It changed my name in the top right but not in my profile.
Log out clear your browsers cache and log back in.
Still didn't change it.
Strange this is how I added GISP to my last name several months ago.
I just tested this by adding my middle initial "J" to my profile name and I worked...
I think it has something to do with me being an Esri employee and how the account was setup. When I did change my global account it did update my name in the top right but not my GeoNet profile. That is the only thing that I can think of that is different. Thank you for trying, I think I need to go internally.
The quick way to do this is if you are logged into GeoNet then you look in the far upper left corner of the page and you will find your name "i.e. Robert" this is a link for logging out, etc on that menu you will find a sub link to My Esri, once there go to "My Profile" and then edit button. Make the changes to your name and save.
