User Information tab
Use this tab to add personal information about the user.A unique user ID representing the user. The user ID consists of up to 15 alphanumeric characters, including punctuation and spaces (for example, sandy: 2). Leading and trailing spaces are removed automatically.
To strengthen security on your system, we recommend that user IDs not be related to user names. Include both numbers and letters in the user ID. A user ID should not be completely numeric, because this could conflict with the user IDs used by gateway accounts. To keep user IDs confidential, do not grant users the View user information privilege or use the Use user IDs as aliases feature.The user's password (maximum 12 characters). To make it hard for someone to guess a password, it should mix numbers and letters. Set password security options on the Group Privileges form.
Client IDA unique number is assigned automatically to each user registered on your server. When combined with your server serial number, this number uniquely identifies the user within your network of FirstClass servers.
ClassThe user type. Regular users use a regular license. Remote users use a session license.
Mail aliasesAll of the user's Internet mail aliases, separated by commas. For example, the user John Smith might have the aliases jsmith and john_s. Aliases specified here will overrride aliases specified on the Aliases tab of the Advanced Directory form. Internet mail aliases must not contain spaces or nonUS 7-bit characters, and they must be unique to your system.
Do not include the domain name, unless it is not your primary domain name. For example, if a user on the Husky Planes site, whose primary domain is huskyplanes.com, wanted an alias of tom but also one of firstname.lastname@example.org, you would type tom,email@example.com in this field.
For multiple aliases, the first alias listed is used as the "From" name for outgoing Internet mail. Incoming mail will be accepted if it is addressed to any of the aliases, provided they are unique. If domain names are used in aliases, Internet Services will only accept incoming mail for domain names that resolve on your server.
If you enter an alias on this form and also enable "Use user IDs as aliases" or "Use initials and last names as aliases", a duplication may occur when you add another user.If you are a FirstClass Unified Communications customer, enter the user's DN(s) in this field. The internal DN that exists on your phone system must be the first DN entered if the user has multiple DNs. A DN is any valid phone number (with area code) that the user wishes to link to his FirstClass Unified Communications Mailbox. Separate multiple entries with commas.
Entries in this field wrap automatically. Do not enter extra spaces, carriage returns or tabs in this field.
Voice passwordIf you entered a Voice DN, enter an initial password for this user. The user must change the password the first time he logs in using the phone. No matter how many valid DNs a user has, there is only ever one voice password.
First nameThe user's first or given name.
InitialsThe user's initials (optional).
Last nameThe user's last name, or surname.
If you selected "Require unique user names" in the System Profile, FirstClass will not allow duplicate user names in the Directory. If the name you enter in the above three fields is not unique, you will receive an error message when you try to save this user account. Change one or more of the name fields.
AddressThe user's address (optional).
TelThe user's phone number (optional).
FaxThe user's fax number (optional).
CommentsAny other useful information about the user (optional).
Custom IDThis field is for integration with external applications. It can be used by external applications to store a database "key" in order to tie the FirstClass account to an external system. For example, the custom ID for each student could be the student number.
CreatedThe date the user account was added. FirstClass updates this field when saving the user account for the first time.
WhereThe hard disk volume on which the new user's Mailbox is stored. You can select a different volume for new users, and move existing accounts to new volumes.

His view is unrestricted (inherits any restrictions from the Group Privileges forms) if you either leave this field blank or enter the All Users and All Conferences groups.
