Different Display Name for Windows Users

Status: Accepted

When using Windows Authentication, the username used by Vault to fill checkin by, check-out by etc. is the DomainName\UserName.   Can you add an option to use the initials or the Display Name of the Windows user. Or add a way to create in Vault a display name for promoted users.

If you map a user property into a file, it should give you the option to map a variety of formats.  Doman\User, User, First Name Last Name, etc.


This way the system user properties become more useful.  Vault actually maps over the first and last name of the domain user if they are filled out on the AD side.
