If your preferred name differs to your legal name, you are able to register both in Opsyte. Here's how we handle those details:
Legal Name: We still need to ask for your legal name, as for Payroll and HMRC purposes your employer will need this on record. Your legal name will be stored in your staff details section.
Preferred Name: Your preferred name will be shown to you and your colleagues in all areas of Opsyte, including communication from us such as emails.
