Hi Chew,

Possible to add a new field called Alternative name for Employee Profile.
This is because staff name especially Malay name is very long, and normally we will only call their nick name or alternative name.
So it is easier for HR to based on the short name to retrieve/add info to the employee easily.
Hope you understand what I mean. Thank you.

Er... everything is possible, but it's a matter of justification only. As I don't receive other such request, this will only mean that it will be at very low priority of my todo list.

Understand. A workaround solution I can think of now is to use the code name as the alternative name. For example "branch name + staff nick name". But there is possible that a branch having two staffs with same nickname. Or maybe a new staff that coming in having the same name as the old staff. Then the code name might cannot be used due to the unique ID. Right? :)

Yes. I was thinking of the same alternatives too.

Perhaps you may try something like

"Branch Code" + "Nick Name" + Running number.

e.g.

BR1-NAME1-001
BR1-NAME2-002

then there will be easier to avoid conflict.
