PROF_PREFERRED_FIRST_NAME entry to show everywhere in Connections Environment

Hi! We made a customization in our environment where we made an entry to have the nickname or the preferred name of our user to show in the connections. However, we just found out that it is only showing in Profiles and Business Card. What we are wishing to happen is to make this showing everywhere.


e.g. Ferdinand (Coke) Ngiwi


So the first name Ferdinand and last name Ngiwi was done in the LDAP but the preferred name (Coke) is a customization made by myself in the PROF_PREFERRED_FIRST_NAME.


We understand that not all databases in Connections has the PROF_PREFERRED_FIRST_NAME table but it would be best if an enhancement can be done in the future where the preferred name can show everywhere.


For now, the workaround that I've done is just to intentionally put the nickname or preferred name "(Coke)" just after the first name through my LDAP which is not a good move since I'm using this with other applications that requires only to show their real first and last names.


Thank You and we do hope that this will happen soon!
