When you add a user on the WS2012 Essentials Dashboard, it does not populate the Display Name of the account object, and it also sets the Description to the same value as the username. Luckily for us Microsoft MVP Robert Pearman has made a PowerShell script which will take a users First and Surname and convert those into the Displayname for you.
This will also make the Windows 8 user experience a little neater, as they wont see there Username Twice at the logon screen etc.
More info including the script can be found here.
