What is it?
Admin can now configure an additional User identifier to be displayed in braces for the User Type-Ahead search results in case of the Peer Recommendation pop-up launched from Collection, Catalog Browse, and User Search on the Instructor's My Classes page.

Note: Once the User is selected, the ID will not be displayed in the selected list.

Why is it important?
