Hi, I had a question regarding the Slack integration. Right now, instead of Coda showing a person’s chosen Display Name as seen by default in Slack itself, it fetches the person’s legal Full Name.
This is extremely confusing, as the default behavior for Slack is to show the Display Name in all conversations.
Even Slack itself says that your Display Name is what “you’d like for people to refer to you in Slack”, as seen below:
So Coda should, ideally, fetch the Display Name. But instead it fetches the Full Name.
It gets very confusing when someone goes by a nickname (“Bill”) that differs from their legal name (“William”) and sets their Display Name accordingly, but Coda fetches their unused Full Name.
