The Search functionality in the People Selector is dependent on the "User Search" and "Goal Management Access" role-based permissions and target population.

Important Notes

  • Only the Goal Plan templates that the logged in user has permission to view will be displayed. 
  • When the logged in user selects a target user to access their goal plan for the first time, the most recent template uploaded to Provisioning will open for that target user. 
  • The action and field permissions defined in the XML will determine what the logged in user can action or view on the target user's goal plan. 
  • Peers are not included in the People Selector panel with this release. 
  • Pagination is applied on the People Selector - this allows the user to keep scrolling down to view more users in the list.
