[LON-CAPA-users] enrollment with unique username
Tue, 31 Aug 2004 13:00:52 -0500
I should've been more specific. I was referring to using the "upload a
class file" method of enrolling students. When I upload a .csv file where
the usernames all have '.'s, then LON-CAPA says that the usernames are
invalid. I actually haven't tried enrolling a single student (you sure have
prestigious undergrads at Colorado!) with the '.' in the username.
It may be that for a single student a '.' is disregarded by LON-CAPA, but
it's been my experience that with classlist uploads from .csv files that the
'.' makes LON-CAPA say the username is invalid.

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] enrollment with unique username
Regarding usernames generated from email address with a period in the
username: I tried the following. I enrolled a student with username
isaac.newton (Note period in the name). The student was successfully
enrolled and is displayed on the roster with username isaacnewton (no
period). When I login in as Isaac Newton, I find that I can successfully
logon with either username isaac.newton or isaacnewton. Both work fine;
lon-capa seems to be forgiving when it comes to periods in usernames.
Are there any known problems with enrolling students with a username in the
