Invites: include display name

email

(Jason Sachs) #1

Is there any way to include a display name as well as an email address in invites?

John Smith <john.smith@example.org> doesn’t seem to work, you have to just type the email address.

The problem is that I don’t recognize people by email address, so when I invite them, and it shows me who I’ve invited, a lot of the invitees have cryptic addresses and I don’t remember who they are. A display name would really help here.

I suppose we could support that advanced syntax, I am loathe to add another text box to the invite screen though.
