Rename Dial-in Numbers to Name
Dial-in users are represented in the participant list by their phone numbers. Since most people don't have a Rolodex in their head to map people to their phone numbers, being able to rename dial-in users to their name (both by the Host for all users to see; and locally for the participant)

This is a critical feature offered in other platforms. In order for Teams to appeal to executives, it needs to have a feature to track attendees. In confidential meetings, this is very important and should be moved up in the priority list.
I host sensitive information calls with over 100 participants including the VP level. Right now I have someone downloading the participant list and cross checking it with our employee directory to ensure the call in folks need to be there. Pre-COVID we only need to ensure the first 6 numbers of their phone number matched. I would really appreciate a solution here!
please add this feature to Teams

I vote yes if they are editable. If they link directly to a contact in our Contacts folder in Outlook it could be an issue since most dial-in numbers come in as the main corporate number.
