2721222 - Private Data for Proxy Account Holder in People Profile


Some line managers will require the appointment of delegates from within or outside their organisation unit to manage certain transactions on their behalf. This will avoid delays in authorising data items which have a downstream impact and ensure the smooth running of the system and its workflows. However, it is important that delegates do not see the line manager’s details.
