Guest Display Name
Please provide a more obvious signal to the Owner who is adding a guest - to designate the Display Name at the time of adding a Guest.
If you don't edit the guest account name (by clicking on that teeny-tiny little edit button on the guest's email address) before you click 'Add' - there is no way to edit the Guest's display name.
Gotta delete and re-add.
Would be nice for a little more signal to the owner that "Here is where you set the Guest's Display Name."
So i just figure out. If you change the name in AAD or through the Office365 admin, you will need to log out and exit the app. Then when you log in it should be updated.
you need to do this for mobile as well. Anyway, it seems to be working for me know.
yeah even if you go through AAD it doesn't seem to update in Teams. seem to be a bug
Our guest (clients) email addresses are initialized and not easily memorable - making it difficult to @mention them. Why is there no "Edit" display name?

I don't see a teeny-tine little edit button - has that gone away?
Owners should have the ability to edit the Guest email address and other profile information for the guests on their Teams. If an error is made when the guest is added and admin must be engaged to delete the incorrect guest account so that it can be re-created correctly.

We've just encountered this exact issue too - suggestion from the MS support page below to go through AAD is not functioning either.
Any suggestions? Fixes?
