Change to display names for anonymous users

We've rolled out a feature to bolster user privacy, especially benefiting linguists. Formerly identified as "Name Hidden," users will now appear as A**** N****, a universal safeguard using the first letters of their first and last names along with four asterisks.

This enhancement proves particularly advantageous for corporate clients and linguists engaged in collaborative projects. Whether a corporate client assigns a Linguistic Service Provider (LSP) or the LSP assigns a freelancer, the client's project manager will now see an anonymized version, such as "I**** K****." It ensures that crucial information remains confidential during communication and revision processes. Additionally, linguists assigned from different organizations to various workflow stages will enjoy heightened privacy, such as LQA Reviewers who won't have access to the linguist's name during the review process, creating a secure and confidential work environment.

Threads are visible for everyone in the LQA-project. But names are hidden:

  • Manager sees everyone's names. In the manager's view, everyone Name has the (name hidden from others) icon next to it

  • Assignee (freelancer, linguist) and reviewers only sees manager's name,  while others are anonymous

  • When manager tags someone with @mention, the name will remain hidden for those who are not allowed to see that name.
