Re: Another term for User when referring to...Users?

Your post reminded me of something else.  I consider accountholder a good way to describe a role which may use an account.  voicemailaudit or journaling are a couple of examples that represent a named account which a person probably won't interact with.  The accountholder, then, is the role of the account itself.

Accountholder as one word does check out and it does have the added benefit of easy indexing. Probably works out well in database field naming conventions, e.g., accountholder_firstname, accountholder_lastname, etc. 

 

Extant is an interesting word for sure. I feel like you deserve to make up your own word for that specific of a definition.

So, you're saying that those of us in IT and security don't do any work?
