Adding a company alias
Company aliases can be used to provide a short name for a company or to group different companies under a common name. Providing an alias for a company (or group of companies) makes searching for a company from the Company field easier because the company can be identified by more than one name. You can define one of more aliases for a company.
To add a company alias
- From the Application Administration Console, click the Custom Configuration tab.
From the Application Settings list, choose Foundation> Organizational Structures> Companies and Organizations, and then click Open. The Company form appears.
For further information about the contents of the Company form, see .
- Search for the company.
- Select the company from the list returned, and select the Alias tab.
- Click Update Alias. The Company Alias Update dialog box appears.
Enter the company alias and click Add.
You can modify or delete a company alias by selecting it from the list and clicking Modify or Delete.
- Click Close.
