          i already found the answer if any of you guys need it also.

           

          This was quite easy if you understand the business catalyst site, what i wanted to do was that everytime a registered user from my site made a web app item to have the user name input on that specific web app item kinda like in the forum you have the user who posted the item.

           

          this was posible by using a module, what i did was that i created another field on the web app named user and it was a text field, then on the web app input form i set this input field as hiden and gave it a value of {module_username} and then in the layout view i put the {tag_user} and done i had this input field named user have the value input automatically and my users didnt knew about the field, the information was done by itself and in the list view it shows who posted the web app item.

           

          hope this helps to someone, if you need further information about this solution feel free to ask.
