How can I change the name of a family member

I added a new user w/ the role guest and generic FN and LN. Now, I changed FN and LN to the real name in the profile of this new user but I still get FN and LN if I’m logged in as Owner. The list of Family members shows FN and LN. How can I change this to the real name?

Help appreciated. Thank you

Good Q. Athom doesn’t provide info for this (as far as I could find)

Is this okay or not okay?

About the name changed account:
What if you logout that user and then log on again?
Does it reflect the new FN & LN when logged on as the user with the changed names?
Restart Homey maybe?

tried this several times in vain. Maybe I change the profile pic and this triggers a refresh. I can only imagine this is a cache issue… but who knows

Bummer… it indeed looks like a cache issue.
Not how you’d like it, but what if you create a new account and delete the altered one?
Do you have to modify a lot of flows then?
And you could send an ask to Athom, I’m curious what they’ll come up with.

Yes, I created a ticket and pointed to here. And, I do have the “guest” in a lot of flows … here’s hope this can be sorted out

Cool! I’m curious, b/c changing usernames is not very uncommon.
In real life f.i. Kids with a new partner, or you yourself an other partner. It happens, and H. can last longer than some relationships?
