From Friday 1 September, the way the names of GHC colleagues is displayed in Outlook and MS Teams will be automatically updated so that surnames will be capitalised. The change has been delayed by a week to allow for the BMA walkouts later this month.
The new format will help distinguish first names from surnames; for example john.smith@ will change to John.SMITH@
The transition will be automatic, but the change may affect the way you search for names in your archived emails – for example, older emails sent from John Smith will appear in Outlook as ‘From Smith John’ before the change was made, however any emails sent from John after 25 August will appear as ‘From John SMITH.’
