Best way to fill in username when only a password exists in 1pass

the scenario is that - you have a website where you generated a password for. But the username is blank (for n number of reasons). You then go back to the site and attempt to login 1pass only fills in the password since it doesn't know about the username. Whats the best way to 'update' the 1pass entry without having to; click the browser ext, click edit, open the new window, add the username, click save, close the new window, go back to login site and refresh or re-select the entry in 1pass.

    Hey @tb582 ,
    If you already have a login for this website that only contains the password, then the route you described is correct. There is a somewhat shorter route (but not by much):
    1. Get to the login page.
    2. Manually fill in your username and autofill the password.
    3. Click the 1Password icon on the top toolbar of your browser, then click the grey gear icon on the top right and select "New Login".
    4. A window will pop up with two tabs in it - Create a new login, or Update existing login. Select the update option and save it.
    5. Your login will now contain both username and password for this website.
