Feature request: Users able to update their own information

Hello forum! Don't know if this is the correct place for a feature request, but here it is: I would like users to be able to update their own skills, delegations and resource pool participation. Our developers have told me that it is not possible to tweak the system to do this (version 9.22). Access to user information is all or nothing and currently only the direct manager can do this. They usually do not have time/interest/forget. What do you think? Is this a valid feature request, or perhaps it can be accomplished some other way? Thanks, /Chris

Hello Chris

When it comes to default PPM functionality, only direct manager can do it (as mentioned by your developers). 

But it is possible to customize it with the help of request type. For example:

1. Lets create a request type which a user can create and on cretion, he/she can provide only his/her name and his role, skill etc should get auto populated.

2. Once user submits the request, you can have fields like New Role, New Skill etc so user can select values to be changed

3. Lets say we have a button "Complete" and when user clicks on it, it completes the request and during execution step, you can have procedure to change his role and skill as selected in request type

Above mentioned solution is a customized one which can be enhanced as per requirement. Hope it helps.
