Setting the Display of Member Names or Aliases

On the General page, you can set which alias table you want to use and how you want the member name or alias displayed.


This tab is only available if Consolidation is enabled for the application.
An alias is another, often more descriptive, name for a member. Sets of aliases are stored in alias tables that your administrator creates. For example, the application may have an alias table for English member names, another alias table for German member names, and so on.
  1. On the Home page, click Tools, and then User Preferences.
  2. Click the General tab, and then select an alias table from Alias Table.
  3. From Display Member Label as, select how you want member names to display in the application:
    • Member Name
    • Alias
    • Member Name:Alias
    • Alias:Member Name
    • Default. If you select Default, then the form, grid, or dimension settings determine how member names are displayed.
  4. Click Save.
