User names that appear throughout the DigThisData application are taken from one of two places depending on what type of authentication users have registered with.
If a user registers with a 3rd party authentication provider (Google of Microsoft), the user name is the same user name that the 3rd party provider has on file.
If a user registers with a custom Email / Password combination, a user name will be generated using all characters before the '@' in the user's email address.
To change your user name that appears in the main navigation of the app, please contact support by creating a ticket. Please include:
- the email registered to the account
- the desired user name
Altering your user name is not currently supported within the user interface of the application.
