ODD! Help! Record Manager name Changed!

[ Edited ]

I am using ACT 2011, Premium, 3 users, in which 2 are remote. I just noticed that MY record manager/ user name has been changed from Judy to Judy+-8650 .  The other 2 users names remain unchanged.


I have no idea what has occurred, or if it's just something I did.


When I viewed the history of my record, it shows when I turned ACT on, somehow +-8650 was added after my name.

Do you think ACT did this, or was is something I did without realizing it? I also have a few other programs/internet on at the same time..



Thanks, Judy

Hello Judy,
If you go to Lookup > My Record it should bring up the contact record associated with your login. More than likely this is what has been just need to correct the contact name. What probably happened is that when you open ACT!, the first record you see on the screen is your own. You may have accidentally started typing something or pasted something into your user name. I don't believe that ACT! would do this. Either way, it is easy to correct.
