  • Hi Yacine, You can achieve this via workflow. Create a "set" Action in a sharepoint designer workflow to Concatenate  "Title" + "User Name" (which would be "Created By" or modified by) .

    However, I would recommend staying away from having multiple metadata fields in one such as Title + UserName. Instead, create an out of the box Documents Center to ensure uniqueness of documents. Implement managed metadata as much as you can as well to help maintain, organize, and filter your documents optimally.

    Here is some more information.
