Allow user to rename contacts name in teams
It will be good to allow renaming contacts names in teams for easily identifying same name contacts
Yes please. I want to rename one of my teammates "The Executioner" and I think we can all agree that this is a worthy goal.

Please Add this feature as it is really hard to know which "Kim" i'm speaking to in Korea or "Nguyen" in Vietnam.
This is a really good idea.
Another example, I work with 50+ sites can't remember which receptionist name goes with which site. Would be nice to edit their name within my contact list to have the site list. i.e. Chicago - First Last. Currently I have to keep a separate spreadsheet to cross reference names. I know a work around would be create a group for each site but then I would have 50+ groups. If the person messages me directly it doesn't show me the group so I would still have to cross reference what site they are messaging from.

Agree with feature would be very useful and improve professional communication.
Main use cases:
- 1. Users with long names (e.g. Hubert Blaine Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorff)
- 2. Users with differing preferred names (e.g. I have 2 "Daniel"s in my team, one prefer "Daniel", another prefers "Dan")

Yes! Really really hoping to see this feature
Yes! Adding the feature to rename a phone number to the person's name on the call would be really helpful for conference call hosts to be able to speak to the person who is on the phone call, and remember who that person on the call is.

Extremamente importante esse recurso, não da para acreditar que não exista .
Please update the feature of changing the name of a contact to look like Skype. I'm very confused when chatting with a contact because their name

Make it "Display as" like in Outlook.

poter rinominare i contatti in modo analogo a quanto avviene su Skype
necessary to avoid any misunderstanding due to typing error
This option is a need - please implement

In my support organization (1000 engineers) I rename contacts to point out which product does the person support.
Without renaming, it is unnecessary chat every time with team managers to find our right person.
Rename contact feature is MUST
This would be a valuable improvement for us, too - for the reasons noted below. Any update on if/when this feature might be available?
Any chance this happens soon?
yes please that will be very helpful.
Yes please! Half of the people in my company show up as their usernames instead of full names.
Example: "ABC1234" is on my contact list instead of "Annie Carter." I end up second-guessing myself, even if I've messaged the person before. It would be such an impactful change to be able to personalize the names ourselves.
I have a customer who uses a numeric number for their logins. rather than a first and last name, or even an email address, teams shows their numeric login. i would like to be able to rename them in my contact list

We have conference rooms with horribly convoluted names which aren't easily searchable. I would like to be able to create or import contacts where I have already created the name and account information. I would also like to be able to force a roll-out of these specific contacts to some (or all) employees in our company.
