How does the Last Edited By field work?

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question about the Last Edited By field in the Info part of a note (I am using the Windows client v5 to view it)


For my business notebooks, sometimes it shows the name of the person that last edited it.  So, sometimes it shows my name when I last edited a note, and it shows my colleague's name when he last edited it.  Other times though, it shows "_business_[my company's name]".  How exactly is this field populated, and why is there an inconsistency?  When I go in an edit a note, often times it still says "_business_[my company's name]"


For my personal notebooks, the field is always blank, which is fine since I know it's just me working on those notebooks...However, I find that in a business setting this is a useful field to have populated correctly.


Thanks for the help!

I have seen the same. _business_name. It seems editing outside of the Win Evernote (i.e. on the Web) changes the name to what it should be.

Seems like the beta is not assigning the name correctly?

Just bumping this .  


I'm finding the 'last edited by' sometimes is blank, even when i've just finished editing it ! ?
