User ID

A unique alphanumeric identification of an individual user profile in Next®. 


Companies often have an internal best practice in place for naming users. If so, we encourage you to implement your best practice in Next®.

At Nextway, we use three characters user IDs based on initials. Others use full names, and others again email addresses. 

We do not encourage you to include business unit in the user IDs. In Next® you cannot change a user ID, but would have to delete and create a new one, in case they move from one business unit to another.

If you have a corporate identity service (for instance Active Directory) in place, we recommend that you hook up Next® to this service, instead of managing your user profiles directly in Next®. And that you setup Single Sign On. This makes life at work easier for the users of Next®, and increases the level of security in your company. 

Tip

Most Next® licenses are limited on the number of users.
