Change your name

By default, everyone can change their name in Zulip. You can write your name in any language you'd like.

Organization administrators can change anyone's name, and prevent users from changing their names. This is useful when users' names are managed via LDAP or another data source.

  1. From your desktop, click on the gear () in the upper right corner.

  2. Select Settings from the dropdown.

  3. Click the button with your name in it, under User settings.

    Note: If clicking on the button doesn't work, check that your organization allows name changes. Follow the steps at prevent users from changing their names and see if the relevant box is checked.

  4. Change your name, and click Save.
