Kindly aswer this->
What happens if i forget my Username in any website though I remember my password. How do i log in ? .. In testrepublic.com there is only Forgot Password Link ? but I couldn't find forgot User name as gmail provides that feature ? I came across this scenario in my application, Shud I put it as enhancement ? but, Some say its the individual's duty to remember Username... But my point of view say i have account in 30 social networking sites with different Username but same pwd. Now, i forgot username..how do i recover ? But people say the enhancement is waste of time.. Do you agree.?
You should definitely log the enhancement. Then It is for the stakeholders to decide if they want to accept your enhancement or not.
If you are feeling that the application is missing some feature, then some user might also face the same problem. So, its better to track the enhancement.
Thanks for the reply. But people say its waste and some even say there is no point in logging the enhancement when you know it will be rejected. some developers say that out of 100 only 1 will face such a situation. but my quest is why should users forget only the password n why nt the username..Do you think Test managers will put forward your enhancement in ur company if you face such a situation..?
As the feature of password it self say that make secure, But in any where in the application asking the user to make you user name secure.
As you said for multiple application you are using the same password different user name. I don't know how it is secure.
That what the feature defined. in any application if user name also secure then you can lock such enhancement.
for general site I don't agree to provide such feature.
if you fell that is that is required in any stand alone application you can make. but web application like this it is wast of time too As I feel.
when i try to login into my account on monday after weekend i generally forget my Pwd, I am sure the same would happen with Username after sometime... So definitely you can take it as enhancement and find some space for Forget Username.
I have gone through few websites which have adopted this functionality, by now many would be thinking about this feature... so why not you become world class...
I think you worked for correct requirement its happens its dont waste of time but acutually you are making your's website or solution or product more user friendly .
For TestRepublic--Ithink Username should be one of your emailid.....?
For Other Website..there are options/sec questions for Username Forgotten...
Good to point out this ... but keeping complex password and changing it on various site is understood... but keeping different user name with variance is not the case ...not many time does this happen ... I agree some time the user name which we want to keep is already taken by some body but suggestion appearing is similar.... Still a valid point to raised... but seems not many people would be needing that ...hence seeing the need and popularity product owner would be interested ..
Till good things to figure out and put for discussion..
Best wishes and Hope to see user name forgot link ,,,,,,soon
