If you would like to display something other a User’s name on your TV channels, you may opt to use a User Alias. The Alias allows you to anonymize your Users on public screens, add geographic or team related data to a User name or simply display a person’s nickname.
How to add a User Alias?
- Navigate to the Users section of Configure, and select a User who you want to add an Alias to.
- Within the User's details, find the User Alias section.
- Type in the User Alias into the text field, and check the box that says Display User Alias.
- Finally, click Save.
*To mass apply a set of User Aliases, go the User List view > click the Select button > select your Users (all or specified set) > click Select again > choose the "Use Alias" option. If no Alias is set for a User, we will display their User Name.
Where are Aliases Displayed?
When an Alias is turned on for a User, Hoopla will display the User Alias instead of User Name anywhere that User appears on the TV, Activity Feed, Dashboard & Rankings. Admins and Team Admins will see the User Name whenever working within the Configure tab.
Who can add an Alias?
Only Admins & Team Admins can add and apply a User Alias. If a User wants to display something other than their name, they must contact their Admin or Team Admin.
