Feature request from blizzardengle, posted on GitHub Nov 22, 2016
The dashboard on Magento 2.0+ chooses to display Guest in place of the customers actual name on the Last Orders grid when the customer checkouts without being logged-in.
- Using Magento 2.0+ (I am using 2.1.2)
Steps to reproduce
- Using Magento 2.0+ (I am using 2.1.2) login to a store that has had customers check out as guests.
- Look at the Last Orders grid on the left and it will say Guest and not the customers actual name; the original poster (OP) attached an image into their post.
- This seems to be the offending file but I could be wrong: vendor/magento/module-backend/view/adminhtml/templates/dashboard/grid.phtml
The Last Orders grid should show who actually placed the order (Billing Name) instead of guest regardless of the fact that they were logged in or not.
Look at the OP's screenshot. Look at the Last Orders grid on the left and it will say Guest and not the customers actual name
