Wish I could edit a user's full name from admin


(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #1

Related to Change full name in profile:

At the moment, in order adjust many users to meet new requirements, I need to visit the Admin page to set a title, and the user’s page (as admin) to edit their full name.

I’d love to see Full Name on the admin page, and editable, please.

Why do new users need to click an extra button to Activate their account?
Why are email addresses hidden behind a "show" button in admin?
Can't seem to edit email of newly registered user
Deactivating a user prevents the Admin from seeing its settings

How can I create a user with no posting privileges

Not able to edit user profiles (as admin or moderator) from admin page

Is there a reason not to allow this? I ask because having to juggle back forth is quite tedious.

Almost Fixed here for Discourse 1.4.

Also related… Adding the ability to send password reset emails from the admin page

And how we simply can’t see these settings if a user is de-activated

Would love never have to visit the user’s side again…

shouldn’t be so hard

Did this ever happen? I need to edit users’ full names. I can’t even edit my own full name! “Enable names” is enabled.

Thanks!

You can, edit it from your regular user page.


(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #7

Why not in the admin side, where we already are?
