Changing citation appearance in Google Docs


I tried to look for a topic related to this problem I’m having when inserting citations in a Google Docs file.

E.g., when I have this after inserting: “… this dataset was used by (Smith, 2000)…”

…and I want it to be “… this dataset was used by Smith (2000)…”

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

What I always do is type the name of the author and then insert the reference using the “suppress author” option.
