I'm not sure if "Preferred Name" is a default field that Elvanto has, or if one of the staff from my church added that field, but anyway.
At the moment I love using the "Print" function when editing multiple services to print out a roster. I use the "Volunteer Calendar" preset and I would love to be able to have this page fill with peoples "Preferred names" rather than "last, first".
At the moment I can print out a roster but I think it's too complex to hand out to my volunteers.
EG: I'd much rather have a roster to hand out that says:
Lights: Stevenson, John
Words: Winter, James
Lyrics: Nadul, Lucas
Sound: Smith, Matthew
Obviously We'd need to make sure that if we had 2 Johns that they don't get confused but that would be the fault of whoever is setting the preferred names/nicknames
Thanks for the message.
I'll put a feature request in for this for you. It would definitely be a useful feature.
Hope this helps,
