Display Full Names on Slack

If everyone’s weird user names confuse you (they confuse me), you can set it so that you see every users full name instead of their “fun” username.  In Slack, go to ​Preferences​ > ​Message Display​ > ​Message Options​ then check the box to show real names.

The default on Slack is now set to automatically display full names.  If you wish to see usernames instead, follow these same directions.
