Summary0024436: Selecting users is not easy if show_realname is set to ON

If show_realname is set to ON it's hard to select a user on various places, e.g. Reporter and Assign To fields in filter section, To field on Send a Reminder page and Assign To fields on various pages.

Since implementation of 0023375 users are focused on username as they see the username at first sight at various places and use the username for @ mentions.

The username can not be used to find the user in drop down lists by typing in the username as the list is displayed as Real Name (Username).

TagsNo tags attached.

Display realname if show_realname is set to ON and user is allowed to see realnames, display the username as tooltip.

This is more logical than what we have after 0023375 but is also better concerning @ mentions than what we had before implementation of 0023375

Or even with sent reminder function and checkbox - add only.
So it will be possible to add more than one

The solution to add users to a ticket is a drop down list like 0012557
If Realname is on - it shows realnames like Mantis before 2.12 in every User field
If Realname is off - it Shows the User ID
Similar to the filter selection for user
Simple and clean
please go in this direction
