I have a user in my company trying to add their first+last name combo as their username and QB is saying User Name already exists. I know it doesn't exist within my company yet, but is QB looking at all users or just within my company?

Thanks

Hi David,

For Usernames they are across all users in Quick Base since they are part of the login process as they serve as a stand in for email address when signing in and a User could be invited to multiple accounts with the same email address. In our current system that could cause issues with overlapping Usernames. I hope this information is helpful.
All users like Evan said. Which is why I always append an abbreviated form of my realm in my username.
