Change NAME() and add CODE() to Users list


As a Model Builder, I need a function to return User's First & Last Name, so I think the best solution would be adding CODE() function for Users list (which would have current functionality of NAME()), and change behavior of NAME() function applied to Users list. For backward compatibility, if NAME() cannot be changed, some function should return User's name. So ideally:

  • New function available for Users list and change of the existing one to behave more intuitively:
    CODE(User) -> text (Email)
    NAME(User) -> text (First Name & " " & Last Name)
  • Or, if NAME() cannot be changed, something like this:
    DETAILS(User) -> text (First Name & " " & Last Name)

  • Additional functionality for the User dimension would be very helpful, including the ability to control the display name or return data as indicated below. I would also greatly appreciate the ability to sort or reorder the user list.
