Personal pronouns display after your name in various areas in Canvas, including:

  • Comment Fields
  • Discussions
  • Inbox
  • People Page (Course and Groups)
  • User Navigation Menu
  • User Profile Page
  • User Settings Page

Setting pronouns in Canvas will only cause them to appear in Canvas, not in any other system.
