Transcripts - Display student's legal and preferred name
With student identity at the forefront, student's are changing their names in Aeries, we move legal name to the LSI fields for legal name and gender, but on transcripts students have to choose either to have their preferred name listed (unofficial transcript) or legal name shown (official transcript). I am requesting the option to add preferred name to show up along with legal name - basically allow both names to be listed on the transcript instead of choosing one or the other.
Yes, I vote for this! It's important for the student!

Preferred names are essential to students' social emotional wellness.
I agree - it is difficult to honor student request for preferred name with the requirements for maintaining legal official records without these features.
