Zoom, Updating Display name

I've changed my NetID or updated my preferred name, how do I get Zoom to update my display name?


Preferred name:

You have the option to use a preferred name as your first name in Zoom.  At which point the next time you log in to illinois.zoom.us it will automatically be updated.  If you do not have a preferred name, then Zoom will pull your first and last name as it appears in Banner.  For more information about how to edit your preferred name please visit the Preferred First Name Statement.

To change your display name in Zoom, you will want to log in to your account profile page at illinois.zoom.us, and click the edit button, to the right of your name.  Confirm your name looks how it should, then hit the save button at the bottom.  You must hit the save button at the bottom in order to update your display name within Zoom. Your display name will be your first and last name as shown in Zoom.

NetID Change:

If you have started the NetID change process, and you have a Zoom account with your old netID, the Zoom team will reach out to you directly to find a time to move the data between accounts.  Scheduled meetings (meetings scheduled with Personal meeting ID are not included), scheduled webinars and cloud recordings are all transferable.  If you have not heard from the Zoom team within 2 weeks of the date the new netID was requested please reach out to Technology Services Help desk by emailing consult@illinois.edu or calling 217-244-7000.  Request a notice be sent to Zoom Tier 3 asking for the data to be transitioned between the two accounts; please include the old and new netid.
