Additional editable fields for Email accounts
Idea shared by Licenciamento Catoca - 9/5/2019 at 10:25 AM
Under Consideration
Hello everyone,

Having only one editable field "Display Name" seems a bit limiting with SmarterMail. When exporting user accounts reports sometimes other information would be useful to associate with email accounts like phone number, employee id or even a full name. My feature request would be to allow admins to add editable fields to their accounts allowing critical information to be added according to the business need.

Hello Luis,

Thanks for the suggestion!  I've submitted this as a feature request for you.

Isn't that what is the profile section of the user is for ? Maybe I didn't understand the question correctly.

Luis; can you please elaborate on where you'd like to see these additional fields? Is there a specific report or area you're having trouble with?

Sebastien; you are correct the user profile is where this information should be configured. I believe the original poster is looking to have this information reflected on reports as well rather than just the username as I'm seeing on disk reports and the like: 

I wonder if a better feature request might be to allow configuration of what fields are returned in reports in a more granular way.

Yes Kyle, if I understood correctly, Luis suggests that we can select which fields to include in reports. This can be a good idea. Not sure if it's easy to implement as the reports formatting would need to adapt dynamically.
To be honest, we never used reports :)
