[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Best practices for staff client usernames

We have a few libraries that setup a separate shared account specifically for creating reports and sharing with the rest of the group.  As far as output is concerned, if it is really important I make a habit of saving a copy to an accessible location for those that might need the information.

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Best practices for staff client usernames


My new director was asking my opinion on usernames and passwords for staff. I am of two minds - I would like more personalized usernames for accountability reasons, but I also recognize things like reports are tied to usernames and it is easier just to change the password when people leave instead of setting up a new user from scratch. We also have only one username for substitutes (by branch) and this can get a bit confusing.

Any opinions?
