Companies - Display Name Is Changing

Posted on by 85

I have five companies setup; two of which are test companies copied from the production companies.  I've noticed that the Display Names of the test companies keep changing to be the production companies displays name.  For example my display name for the test company is 'Test USA' and it will change to 'Company Name USA' which is the display name of the production company it was copied from.  Has anyone else seen this before?

    I went ahead and followed your lead on this one.  I haven't seen it change back as well.

    If you create a new company via Companies, Copy, there will be no display name filled in. When you logon to the new company, you will have to go to Company Information page. Here you will find CRONUS company. You will have to change it there so that the display name will be filled in when looking again at the Company Information page.

    I did not yet see that this changes again to the original name of the CRONUS company (which is the source company) after you do the modifications like this.

    Hope it helps.
