    Is that the exact change you want to make? We don't have a search and replace feature, but if you are just adding a character to the end like your example, see if these instructions will work for you:

    Select a few test users in Hyena's right-hand window, then right-click and choose Manage Directory Attributes. In the Attributes window scroll down and find displayName then double-click on it to add it to the left, then click OK. Click the Modify button, and in the box at the bottom enter:

    %displayName%R

    This will take the current displayName value and add the letter R to the end (using your example). Click OK to apply the changes then look at the users you modified to make sure it is the way you want.
