Rename call in participant
Is there a way to rename a call in user in MS Teams meetings, e.g, if you have someone come in via phone only and you want to associate a name with the phone number. In other conferencing apps you can rename a call in user.

Rename participant in Ms Team should be available.
Zoom have this option and we are using it.
Our default software is MS Team, but for contractor meetings. when 10 to 15 contractor joining explanation meeting we have to use zoom, because we don't want to show contactors original name to each other and this option is from long time available in zoom.
MS team should consider this.

Basic need yet Microsoft can't respond to the needs of it subscribers.

Individual call-in participants should also be able to rename their name. It would be way to much of an effort for the meeting organizer to do this if there are a lot of participants
Nick Rowland commented
Why is this not an option!? Seems like it would be basic functionality for the dial-in option.

No need to do this all manually. We might be able to automate some of this.
- what about taking - callerid with name as an option?
- What about doing a Active Directory Looking and match phone ANI and display name?
go to meeting has this functionality. Why does Teams not have it.
Rename an unidentified caller
Once the caller has verbally identified themselves, you can rename their entry in the People pane.
In the People pane, right-click or click the Arrow icon by the unidentified caller's name.
Click Edit name.
Enter a name for the caller, then click OK.

We have many participants that call in, and as the meeting admin, it would be a tremendous help to be able to rename the participant's phone number to their name. Can this feature please be added ASAP? GoToMeeting has this, as do other conferencing services.
Please can the options to remove names entirely please be an option. This would be handy for larger group calls.
also if Caller ID display like mobile phone caller ID, display as name instead of Phone number.
Please allow the ability to Rename a participant in MS Teams. In addition, please enable a User PIn so that users can auto attach their dial-in phone number to their name on the screen. These two features would significantly improve the functionality.

It will be very useful.

This is a must. When can we expect this to be added?

When will this be added? I am not sure why this is not a feature. Can someone from Microsoft Teams explain?
Agree! This is absolutely needed.

Completely agree. Perhaps add a section where call in participants could be moved to if they are just calling in to hear, not present?
