If your organization has implemented a standard login and/or e-mail format, you can set up a formula that will allow Web TimeSheet to automatically generate a user's login name and e-mail address based on the user's first and last names. This feature helps to reduce the time spent setting up users, whether you add users individually or via Quick Add.

The login name and e-mail formulas are entered in the System Preferences and apply to all users in the system. They may contain the following tags:
Tag: $FName 
Description:
First name using the same case structure as entered in the First Name field

Tag: $FNameLower
Description  First name in lower case.

Tag: $FNameUpper
Description: First name in upper case.

Tag: $FInitial
Description: Initial of first name using the same case structure as entered in the "First Name" field.

Tag: $FInitialLower
Description: Initial of first name in lower case.

Tag: $FInitialUpper
Description: Initial of first name in upper case.

Tag: $LName
Description: Last name using the same case structure as entered in the "Last Name" field.

Tag: $LNameLower
Description: Last name in lower case.

Tag: $LNameUpper
Description: Last name in upper case

Tag: $LInitial
Description: Initial of last name using the same case structure as entered in the First Name field.

Tag: $LInitialLower
Description: Initial of last name in lower case.

Tag: $LInitialUpper
Description  Initial of last name in upper case.

The e-mail formula must contain the appropriate tags as well as the domain name (e.g., $FInitialLower$LNameLower@replicon.com).

Examples:
The following examples provide various tag combinations and the resulting login name and e-mail address. For all examples, assume the e-mail domain is replicon.com.
$FInitialLower$LNameLower = jsmith@replicon.com
$FName$LName = JohnSmith@replicon.com
$FNameLower_$LNameLower = john_smith@replicon.com
$FInitialUpper$LNameUpper = JSMITH@replicon.com

Note:
You may enter any additional characters in either formula (e.g., a period or underscore might be entered between the first and last names in the e-mail formula).
