Browse can see users

[ Edited ]

When a user is assigned a acl of  "browse" they can still see other user names although they are grayed out.

How can the "browse" user be blocked from seeing other user names?

 

also since users are "public" by default how can they be made private currently mine are all grayed out

which if possible I believe would solve the above issue.

 

I guess I could use generic names such as "user1,user2, etc to maintain user anonymity

 

thanks

Re: Browse can see users

User records cannot be made private, and will be viewable by all users.

 

Can you expand on the reason behind the question?  Is it that you don't want users to know the names of other users, or that the user records may contain information that you don't want shared (example: emails in History tab)...

 

Knowing the base reason for the question may enable Community members to describe how they have resolved a similar issue.

I thought this may be the case.

We allow competing clients to log in, having said this most competing companies know of each other.

ie: There is no need for a manager from Burger King, to see a manager name from McDonald's.

I guess am stuck with generic names.

to do a work around i created a field in which i will keep the real user name.

how can i  make this field be viewable to only the logged in user,field security is what i need to apply

if i understand this correctly it will have to be a custom field per user to make it unique

so a 100 users equals 100 fields for which i see no batch creation tool either

 

any thoughts on this is appreciated

thanks inadvance
