DisplayName - Is it possible to edit ?

I have a customer who use the format for their DisplayName as Surname,Firstname but I would like to be able to show the DisplayName in Powerapps and Flow as Firstname,Surname. 

Is it possible ?

You cannot switch the way the DisplayName is coming in, but you have options.

You didn't mention if you are getting the DisplayName from a SharePoint person column or from an Office 365 profile.

If you are getting from an Office 365 profile, then you can use:

   Office365Users.MyProfileV2().givenName & " " & Office365Users.MyProfileV2().surname

 

If you are getting the information from a SharePoint column, then you can use (again you'll need the Office365User connector):

   Office365Users.UserProfileV2(yourSharePointColumn.Email).givenName & " " & Office365Users.UserProfileV2(yourSharePointColumn.Email).surname

 

I hope this is helpful for you.  If you have more specifics on where you are getting displayName and need more help, just post back.
