I'm starting to develop simple TASK lists, to assign tasks to a team. Unfortunately, I'm finding that the ASSIGNED TO field wants to populate user names with a NETWORK-Style name (i.e., mycompany.com\jsmith ), instead of a preferred user
name (i.e., John Smith). The descriptive user name DOES show up for a few users, but not most.
I figure that there must be something buried in some user roles/permissions, at some level - but I am still having problems with navigating around the Sharepoint neighborhood to find the options that I want (if they exist).
I'd very much appreciate assistance with something that could, I hope, be rather simple.
