How can I edit a team member name?  Should be simple edit button or tab and there is none, only delete/uninvite in settings. This is frustrating!  Thanks  ahead of time for helping with this

Has someone answered this? I see the question several times, but not the answer. I tried importing from Gmail to get the correct name, but it told me I had already done that

Try removing all third-party contacts, then connecting those services again.

I had already tried that . . . it didn't work.

I didn't see any place to click to remove all connected aps, only to remove each individually. I disconnected and reconnected Gmail, with no effect.

I have the same question... did any one else figure out how to edit a contact name? The name (which is incorrect) automatically appears when I type the email address (when sharing a file), but the email address and the name of the person aren't the same... meaning they are two different people! I don't know how it happened, this just appeared.
