Auto Enter on Creation


     I see there are 2 options as far as a user name in the auto enter on creation and account name. 

     One seems to be the username used to actually login to the database, the other seems to be the username set under the FileMaker application preferences.


     Is there a way to run a script to pull the account description and use this instead of the username?  We use employee numbers as usernames, but have the employees real name entered in the account description field.

     Using employee numbers makes it easier to login, but with 100 employees, its difficult for everyone to remember everyone else's employee numbers.  Setting the user name under preferences is also not an option because many people share 1 computer login.
