​This blog post is part of a series called “Tip of the Week”. This week, we'll introduce a feature that helps run the business better when working with user-names.

Remember when you started a new job? What happened in one of the very first days? Right! You got your work e-mail address and access credentials to the various systems. Account and user names, passwords etc. Could be that your user is the same as your name but this is not always the case… each business has its own policy & preferences. So even if you learned by heart your credentials, it might not be that obvious that jd_02 is the user code created for John Doe who just joined the company together with four other new employees.

To increase transparency and prevent confusion SAP Business One displays the user name alongside the user code in License Administration and Add-on Administration windows:

This way, when assigning licenses or add-ons, the super user can ensure that the assignments are done for the relevant users. To improve usability, the list can be sorted by either user code or user name.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0 and SAP Business One 10.0, version for SAP HANA.
