Preferred vs Legal Names

    Hello,

    We also have a similar situation where we have staff who change their legal name to their preferred name. This causes issues when exporting to quickbooks to do payroll. If we could have the option of showing a preferred name on the account and having the legal name displayed when exporting and unable to edit it, that would be ideal.

    Thank you!

    Beyond the previous reasons above, we also would benefit from a preferred name field separate from the legal name field.  Preferred names are used daily and not all of our staff know the employee's legal name, so when they are looking to help each other out and pick up shifts etc. staff go in and change their name.  This then impacts payroll processing, and creates greater user problems than it solves.  Please consider adding preferred name/nickname to the staff profile field that then is the name listed on schedules and such for public use, while maintaining a legal name data field that populates for payroll and tax reporting purposes.
