Description

Users attempt to tag people in the logbook whenever possible, but sometimes there are two people with the same name. We do have their Fermi username, which we use to look them up in the Fermi phone book too see if they are in the right group. The idea to improve this would be to display their Fermi group information in the name hover, so that users wouldn't need to go to a different tool to lookup what group someone belongs to.

Screenshots of a proposed implementation attached.

I think there are some implementation issues with this idea that might make it difficult. It looks like that name hover is the same thing that gets displayed on the entry. It also sounds like a synchronization nightmare to keep the information up to date on the Elog side.
