get (username) behaviour Filemaker go (local share)

I have a solution that creates log notes using get(username). I was testing it on a LAN connected iPad and username returns "iPad" as per FM GO application settings even though to log in to the ipad version the user must login. Is there a way to get the real user name on GO clients?  I realise I can change the user name in the  FMGO settings, but this doesn't help as multiple users will be using the iPad.

 

Do I to create a startup login screen to capture a field contents for username when they select their name from a list?

 

Thanks in advance
