This function will add the %username% variable to all possible setting which have already a content.
So there won't be a %username% in your ProfilePath setting if the field was empty before.
In ADMGM 1.0.3 it is possible to define the DisplayName of the users. The setting of ADMGM 1.0.2 was %lastname%, %firstname% so this is the default setting in the converter for this field.
Here you can define the settings for the Home Directory creation. If you have template files in version 1.1 the only thing which will be changed are the permission parameters because they differ in version 1.2
