    Yeah Witch, i get what you mean, you can walking down the corridor and three students/teachers/management/ofsted inspector come up to you and say "Sir (Miss in your case, i think!), whats me password" and even worse, "What's me user name". Scary or what!

    Re: Usernames

    As you have posted in LNM forum, I guess you are asking about the options for username creation in LNM. Off the top of my head, I think there are three: alias (first name and initial of surname), firstname surname, and another I can't remember (I'm at home at the moment). Do you have the LNM User Manual? Look at the section about the Provisioning Wizard, the tool for importing users in bulk. If you need any further help, or don't have the manual, can you post again here? I'm not in work again until Monday now, but I should be able to give you full info then if you need it.

    Re: Usernames

    Problem is if you want to translate the username into an email address, you're breaking security guidelines by using part of the kids name.

    I want to use exam numbers, that and combined centre number might do for us, or some method of defining the year group - like their final year - class of XX for example...

    Thinking back, it's the staff that have their names as firstname.surname and the kids have there own MIS number (me thinks) on there account, however there names do appear within the directory if they were to search for pal etc
