The issue in GetHuman-cdbsmith's own words
It is common for people with professional certifications to add the acronyms to their last names (e.g., Charles Smith, CFA). This is also allowed on LinkedIn. However, I am not able to add FP&A to my name because it has a special character, which is restricted in the "Last Name" field. The FP&A certification is popular and growing. So, many people will want to add it to their names.**In fact, LinkedIn previously allowed special characters in the "Last Name" field and some folks were able to add FP&A to their names (e.g., see Brian Kalish, FP&A).**Can LinkedIn remove the special character restriction on the "Last Name" field? **Thanks!
