Johns Hopkins Directory Preferred Name


Please Read this important information regarding Preferred Name in myProfile.

Changes made to Preferred Name fields will update some systems that consume JHED data and will change your Office 365/Exchange email FROM name.  


To update your preferred name, do the following:

1) Change your preferred first name if different than what is listed in your JHED record.

2) Change your preferred full name so that it reflects your preferred first name and your last name. You may also include middle initials or other signifiers that help reduce confusion between you and people with similar names.  Example:  Mary Smith (IT@JH)


First and Full Names are used differently depending on the JHED downstream system
