3474752 - Assign Task Observation - Add Observers


Users can add anyone as an observer in the Assign Task Observation feature, regardless of their authorization.

When users utilize the search function and perform a blank search, it correctly filters and displays only those authorized to teach. However, if they manually enter a User ID without using the search function, it appears to bypass this authorization check, allowing selection of users who are not authorized to teach.
