Ability to edit user name

Ability to edit user name


User profiles: user name cannot be updated (ex: in instance of a simple misspelling) by system admin. It can only be done by contacting Anaplan Support. Better if admins can do it.

Sorry but do you have an instruction on how to use it?


Hi, I see that this idea has been marked as "delivered", but I cannot find any instructions on how to edit a User's Name. Do we still need to contact Anaplan Support for this?

Bumping this one up again. Rebecca changed the status to 'Delivered' in September 2018, but are there instructions for how to do this?

I found this today and it looks like the functionality exists to update your own name.


On your home page.

  1. Click your initials in top-left
  2. Click "My Account"
  3. Make the changes
  4. Click "Update Profile"

I did have to log out and log back in afterwards, but my name was updated when I reviewed the "Users" pane.
