I see rem-software.ch also. And I'm a logged in member.
My guess is you may want to change your User name. The user name shows in place of your name in some cases.
YEs - I realized that all (logged in or not) see the company name - BUT when I am logged in, my name is Markus Schneider. And this is the problem.
WE created 'rem-software' because thats the billing address for technet/fba
Hi Markus, you see your name when you log in because you have access to see your name, where others don't. This can be changed in your privacy preferences.
As for seeing rem-software.ch, this is because it's your username. It might also be your company name, but the main reason is because it's your username. If you go to your profile and change your username (there is a field at the bottom that we read nightly to change for our users).
Everyone will see user names, so if you would not like people to see that, you will need to change your username to anything else that you want.
I changed the settings, allowing to see the name by everbody
no change )-:
IMHO I got 2 alternatives
- change the user name, I think that's not so good because its the billing address for technet&FBA
- create a new user, loosing all the points, declaring me as rookie again - no, thanks, I'm developing FM solutions sincs V2.0
Hi Markus, I'm not sure why changing your username is an issue. Your user name in the community is not what is used for billing addresses or anything like that. It's strictly just your community idea.
SO, the username was taken from technet.. - I changed it now, hoping that fba doesn't change.
REceiving bills, info for the company, etc. was just easier to handle when sent to the company name. When it's different for this forum here, it's really not a problem.
I'm still puzzeled that the name did not appear to the public when set to 'viewable for all' - and that it was different before when I was logged in
WEll.. I changed the username - and tried to check for the fba space (why is this so hard to find?? No link on the filemaker.com homepage anymore), finally found the link on the home of the community-page -> and its the same user, what I was afraid of.
For most of the developers, thats not a problem, but I really don't like it. My company is owned by 2 people and that user was just created for fba (and technet) - to get fba infos (sales stuff, licencies for our customers, etc) by those 2 people. I'm the one who is active on forums/discussions (mostly on forums.filemaker), thats why I prefer a separate visible name (what isn't a problem on forums.filemaker)
WOuld be wonderfull, when we could change the 'visible' username and set that to visible for all - just like in other forum software (as mentioned before: I changed the name and set that to be visible for all - no effect)
I was too fast... (-:
AFter checking again this morning, the changes of the privacy settings were visible! So, the right answer is to set the privacy setting for the name to 'all, inc. guests', wait a while before checking...
THank You very much! I marked the right answer from Mattew O'Dell
