  • Default username

    How do I set a default username format so when adding a new user it automatically sticks to a convention?

    You get a choice of a few in a drop down box.

      True but not the one I want which is forename.surename. Also I want it to be the default choice since someone else is setting up users and I don't want that person to get confused.

          Specifically:
          As you can see in Figure 6, you can choose between 7 local E-mail address parts. The local part of an e-mail address is the name format appearing before the “at sign (@)”. If none of the default 7 local parts fit what you need to use for your E-mail address Policy, you can use the variables listed in Table 1 below.




          Variable


          Description




          %g


          Used for given name (first name)




          %i


          Used for middle initial




          %s


          Used for surname (last name)




          %d


          Used for display name




          %m


          Used for Exchange alias




          %xs


          Uses the x number of letters of the surname. For example if x=2, then the first two letters of the surname are used.




          %xg


          Uses the x number of letters of the given name. For example, if x=2, then the first two letters of the given name are used.
