​When sync a user name to a list column, it shows DN property instead of real name, like:

CN=Michael Jackson,OU=Musician Dept,OU=US Singer,DC=US,DC=local

How to show the name only but not domain information, etc.?


​The reason it shows the DN is the column is mapped to a single line of text, change it to a ‘Person or Group’ column will resolve the issue.
