Changing a Username or Display Name in G Suite

Once you have setup a G Suite account, you might want to change a user’s Username or Display Name. However, before doing that, please read carefully what happens when you change a Username for a G Suite account. Also, please ask the user to sign out from their Google Cloud.

  1. Log in to G Suite with your administrator account.
  2. From the Admin Dashboard, please go to Users.
  3. On the Users page, please click on Rename next to the user whose Display Name or Username you would like to change.
  4. Change either of the below:
    a) Primary Email address – This changes the user’s log in name and primary email address.
    b) First name and Last name – This changes the user’s default Display Name.
  5. Click Rename User and you are done!

There are many other things that can be done with a G Suite administrator account. You can check the all out on this link.
