We have a classmate whose name is "KC." Not "K.C."

I think the program assumes that the second letter is lower case, so that if someone types in the name "JO" or "jo", it will come out "Jo."

Our classmate's name comes out "Kc.

Is there any way that we can get his name to show up correctly?

Yes, just click on Manage Classmates and change it any way you want. Our system only makes that assumption 1 time. Reason being, many people will import class lists in all upper case. The sytem doesn't have room for all upper case names because the characters are much wider than lower case characters. So our system automatically sets everything to mixed case no matter what. You can simply edit and override this though on any name you want.

Thank you!

Actually, the place I'm looking at where it's still showing up as mixed case is on the list of Classmate Profiles.

Even after I changed it in Manage Classmates, on that page his name still shows up as "Kc."

Weird, you're right. The system used to allow the override on the second edit and thereafter. Apparently something we've added recently has broken the override. I'll have a programmer take a look at this next week and restore it to allowing the override.

Thanks again.
