Manually change FullName for MS CRM USERS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    in MSCRM 2011

    My client uses initials to identify its employees. Therefore I would like to force the FullName by code to be Equal to INITIALS, or at least I want to be able to change the value of the FULL NAME Field in the table of users

    I would like to avoid the following i.e : type initials in the last and first name and set Fullname to LASTFIRST without space

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Regarding the format of the fullname you can only select one of the predefined formats in the system settings of the server. If you would like to change them you can implement a post-create plugin - i think there you should change the fullname.

    For changing the existing ones you have to update the database - as far as i know, there is no other way...

    Best regards,

  • Finally we did the following (for each new user) :

    -  change the setting to LASTNAMEFIRSTNAME

    -  put initials in first and last name

    - create alternate fields for real first and last names

    - change back to FirsName LastName in order to avoid issues in contacts

    Thanks and sorry for the late comment
