Update Phone Number Participant With Name/Free Text

Wondering if there has been the thought to allow a moderator to update a participants name from a ANI/Phone Number to an actual name. This allows for quick identification of users or person talking. When they are via the app or room you can see their name but for voice only participants it would be nice to tag as particular users. This is also helpful when you are hosting a large town hall and mute everyone but want to unmute a presenter without telling everyone on the call how to unmute.

Hi Houston,

This is a great idea. I believe this feature request is already submitted to our dev team. I will add your enterprise name in the requester list. 

Thank you,

I'm extremely interested in this as well, as sometimes I will have 14 or more phone numbers listed.  I would love to be able to change their number to a name.  Please keep me posted.  Thanks!

How do I vote on this?  This is standard functionality in WebEx, by the way.

Have used this in every other system I have used.  Even some of the Free Conference Call apps allow you to do this.  My vote is YES!  Please provide this feature.
