Bug Description

after being confused when using the web frontend initially I think it is fair to file a but trying to help.
My (personal) problem was that the default names of the account have been so misleading that I didn't realize I have two accounts.

The Dashboard as well as the Dropdown wasn't great at making clear what is a profile and what is an account.

To be clear, once you have understood it it is rather clear.
But we want to avoid new users pain right?

I've pondered what would have helped me and provide a suggestion, but the real solution (if you decide to need any) could obviously be totally different and up to you. I'm not a UI expert and only suggesting.

I'll attach two screenshot outlining what I initially found and what I'd think would be better.

Similar to my comment on #2028511. We'll keep this in mind in the new UI design process. I think whatever replaces the dropdown will be clearly labelled as "Accounts" with perhaps a special case if account name == user's name.

affects: landscape-client → landscape
Changed in landscape:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
