New legal and display name settings
Published on September 15, 2021 by Alanna Irving
You can now differentiate your public display name from your private legal name.
Open Collective is a transparent platform, so profiles are public on the internet. We also deal with official stuff requiring real names, like receipts, payments, and tax forms. Up to now, this sometimes led to issues about privacy and identity. If you don't want to use your legal name publicly, this new feature can help!
Find the options in profile settings, for both individuals and organizations—giving people and companies more choices about how they appear on the platform.

Love this! Note that in the Open Collective signup screen, it still asks for "full name" when that should probably be display name (since that becomes your user profile URL)?
