RE: [K12OSN] Account Names Help



What I do at Holy Infancy is pretty simple, and it is very simple and easy
to organize.

For the faculty, our usernames are simply our last name followed by our
first initial (e.g. santiagon, smithj).

For the students, their usernames used to be just their graduation year
followed by their last name, and if there is an overlap then their first
intial (e.g. 05santiago, 05santiagon).

But since I noticed there were hardly any overlaps, I switched them to the
same structure as the faculty with the last name and first initial, then if
there was an overlap, I'd use the second letter of the first name (e.g.
santiagoni, smithjo).

Hope this helps!

Nick

How about first initial, first x letters of last name, and then 
graduation year:

jsmith04, bjones08

That way, all a teacher needs to know is first and last name and grade.
