Purpose of the Mod

To add the selected person's name (generally, as a hyperlink to getperson.php) next to an existing PersonID on some screens. This change allows a user both to see the name of the selected person, and to view information about that person before processing the Person record.

Specifically, the Person Name is added to:

  1. The Starting Individual column in the Admin Branches search results
  2. The Person lookup widget in the Admin Branches editor,
  3. The Person lookup widget in the Admin Users editor.

Compatibility with Other Mods

There are no known mod conflicts.
