can I change my account name in my client center?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In My Client Center initial set-up >> "set general information" >> "enter a name for your account" I entered my name, John Doe.

Now that the account is set-up and I'm managing more clients, I'd like to change it to my business name. 

Can I change my account name from John Doe to My Company Name -- or do I have to create an all new account?

Hi Mack,

 

Thanks for posting on our Community forum. You can change your MCC name by following these steps:

 

  1. Click the Wheel button in the upper right corner of your screen.
  2. Then click Account settings.
  3. Under Display name for clients, click Edit.
  4.  Next to Business information, you can then edit the business name to whatever you prefer.

Please let me know if you are able to change your MCC name with this information.

Has this changed recently? I can't see "Display name for clients" under Account Settings... I can't find anywhere else where I can update the account name.

Hi @Adrian K

 

You must select the gear icon, found beside your customer ID (top right hand corner)

 

From there, select Account Settings

 

Then you need to select "Preferences"  from the left hand menu

 

Found on this page, you will see  -

 

Display name for clients (last item on the page)
 
Account name | Your current Name | Edit
