We can now set permissions for each event reasons. Previously, specific permissions were not required for event reason types.

  1. Navigate to Admin tools
  2. Manage permission roles
  3. Choose Respective role
  4. Employee Data
  5. Event Reasons


  • For Event Reasons only the "Edit" flag is considered in RBP.
  • The permission has no influence on viewing existing records.
  • The permission only filters the content of the event reason drop down when creating / changing data via MSS (Take Action - Change Job and Compensation Information).
  • The Event Reason field will appear editable in Pending Workflow Requests, event when there are no permissions to any Event Reason. Nevertheless, the drop down will be filtered - it will show no value available for selection.
  • It should control that only users with the permission for event reasons can execute these actions (i.e. stop selecting the restricted value in the drop down for event reason).
