Help with in-text citation style (exclude name initials from in text citation)

edited 16 days ago

I don't know what's going on but some citations appear as: (LastName et al., YEAR) while others appear as (Initial1, Initial2, LastName et al., Year). (e.g., (Allen et al., 2017) and K. E. Jones et al., 2008). I'm using APA 7th edition.

I found that the issue might be with the name (either just initial, full name, Initial with/without a period, etc). Does anybody know an easy way of formatting the authors' name (batch changes). I have 60 pages just in of references...

Thanks for any help!
