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.

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.

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

Organizer should have the ability to rename call-in participants, a core functionality of other collaboration applications.
When using teams, with many call in users. This option would help know who is who. Example, in a hearing, this option would let you tag an attorney/plaint/defend. This way there will be less confusion on who is speaking. Preventing any misunderstandings, during proceedings.
Allow even Presenter to rename their names as well as participants. So for example, I am registered under my business name then rather than showing my business name, I want to rename it and show only my name.
