Suggestions and Requests / Author Aliases
« on: October 06, 2010, 03:23:05 am »
I'm sure this is low priority and might already be solved (I'm a noob).

Our models have the users' login ID for the Author field, but these show up as "x12345" or "ajohnson", these are not quite as useful as we would like.

Suggest having an Author Alias table that is keyed by the login ID and contains information about the author.  We would find useful the following information:
  • Real Name
  • Corporation (we have subcontractors)
  • Phone Number
  • Email address
  • AlwaysCC (email to subcontractors must be CC'd to this address)
Program options could determine how to display the author field on-screen and in reports.

Would be extremely handy to use that field to start an email to the author.

I've searched the forums for "Local Project path" and the Java interface docs, and cannot find anything that will give up that path.  I need this for a routine that will automatically (read "correctly") put a package under individual version control, so I need to create a path within the version control system (per project rules) to contain the .xml file.

Any help is appreciated.
