But all three could be using the same file at the same time.
This is a built in feature of the server admin console, but it would appear that you are using FileMaker Pro to host the file and I do not think this is possible when hosting from FileMaker Pro.
Sorry, I meant to say that the file is on one machine. The three users are shift workers and there is only ever one user at a time. No sharing at all.
Try using Get (Accountname) in a calculation field without saving and put this field in the layout.

And make sure that you use Get ( accountName ) and not Get ( UserName ).
An account name is defined in Manage security and will be the account name used to log into FileMaker in order to open the file. A User name is specified in Preferences. Just to confuse things, when FileMaker's password dialog first appears when a file is opened, FileMaker enters the user name as the default account name....
