Displaying Localized User Names in Display Language

Article Number:020235

When displaying localized user names that match your display language, configure a "Localized Name".
Display names that match your display language can be configured, such as in kanji or hiragana characters for Japanese, or in alphabetical characters for English.

Example: When the display name is "田中 愛美"

For example, regardless of the display language of the user, displaying "田中 愛美" in Japanese on kintone.com would be inconvenient for members who do not understand Japanese.
If you configure the display name for each language as shown below, it would be helpful for users to understand their user names in multinational environment.

Display name when display language is set to Japanese
田中 愛美
Display name when display language is set to English
Manami Tanaka
