If you want to display and sort your employee’s nickname when viewing your Employee Listing, you can head over to Profiles > Manage my database > Company Details > Basic Information.

Scroll down on the left side to tweak the settings for Employee name order settings in Profiles to show nicknames in Employee Listing.

There are a few formats in the dropdown list that you can choose from to display Nicknames:

  • Nickname / First Name, followed by Last Name

  • Nickname / Last Name, followed by First Name

  • First Name, followed by Last Name / Nickname

  • Last Name, followed by First name / Nickname

How Will Nicknames be Displayed in Employee Listing?

You should be able to see the employee's nickname under the Employee Name column as long as you have done the following:

  • Keyed in the Nickname in the respective employee's profile.

  • Selected the correct name display option in Company Details.


With this feature, you’ll be able to customise how you’d like to view your employee’s name in the system at your convenience. 😀

NOTE: These name formats displayed in the system do not affect Employee Name Order formatting generated in Tax Forms for employees.
