  • This allows a user to view the full names of other users.
  • This capability is only applicable if the full name format is set to First name (or Language) in Settings > Site administration > Security > Site policies. In this case, a user with a role in which this capability is not set, e.g. a student, can only view the first names of other users. A user with a role in which this capability is allowed, e.g. a teacher, can view the full names of other users.
  • Preventing or prohibiting this capability does not result in full names of other users not being displayed at all. If the full name format is set to First name in Site policies then a user with a role in which this capability is prevented or prohibited can only view the first names of other users.
  • This capability is allowed for the default roles of manager, teacher and non-editing teacher.
