Display Name vs Account Name

Hi! Hoping someone can help. I work for a small business and made a pro account. When I send a meeting link, I want it to read -

"Business Company" is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

 

Topic: "Business Company's" Personal Meeting Room

 

But when I join through that same account, I want it to have my name as the display name, not the business account. Is there a way to have these be different? Or do I just have to manually change my display name in the zoom each time? 

 

Thanks!

Hi, This is a setting in your profile. Login to Zoom.us. click on profile and edit. You should see the "Display Name" section and change it.

Hi, Mark.  Unfortunately, I have the same problem, but the solution doesn't work for me.  I have changed my name everywhere possible (profiles, display name, preferred name, etc.), but my full name is still showing up when I join a Zoom meeting.  Any other suggestions for solutions?  Thank you.

Hello @eaj16 

When the Allow participants to rename themselves setting is enabled, you have the option to rename yourself during a meeting. When hosts disable this setting, you will not see the option to rename yourself.
