User name display inconsistency in MOSS 2007 meeting attendee list
Posted on 2011-04-19
I have a problem with the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 attendee web part on a meeting site.
When I add names to the attendee list I get one participant whose name never displays correctly (same one every time). Normally (and what I want) the meeting attendee web part displays each participants “Preferred Name” (like John Doe) in the name column, however with this one account it displays our domain name, back slash, the users AD logon account name (like COMPANY\jdoe). I don’t know why this is happening, or how to fix it.
I’ve checked the active directory information and it’s all correct. From the SharePoint Central Administration site I’ve checked the user profile, and it imported correctly and completely, and you can even type in the preferred name in the search box when adding accounts to the attendee list and it works properly, but as soon as you view the meeting site you get the wrong name shown.
Anyone know why this is happening?
