We have assigned ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-1 as a custom field to identify the credentials of our employees (we're a medical facility). Currently, the field appears on our portal(s) as ms-Exch-Extension-Attribute-1 alongside the textbox where the credential information is entered. Is there a way to change this fieldname/label to "Credential(s)" - (Without the quotes or the question mark) - to make it easier for everyone to understand?
