Cancel Primary Development Plans

Prior to this enhancement, users were unable to cancel their primary development plan. In some cases, plans created by mistake or to test functionality, become the “primary” plan if there were no other development plans.

With this enhancement, users can cancel primary development plans, even when it is the only development plan available.

To access a development plan, go to Home > Universal Profile and select the Snapshot tab. Then, select the Development Plans widget.

Starter Guide/Adoption Kit


There is no change to who can cancel a development plan. Users can cancel their own plans, and, when configured in Development Plan Preferences, managers can cancel development plans for their subordinates.


This functionality is on by default.


The following existing permission applies to this functionality:

Assign OU Development Plans Grants ability to create and assign Development Plans to all users within specified organizational units or custom groups. This is an administrator permission. Performance - Administration
Development Plans - Manage

Grants ability to create, edit and manage development plans for self (and others depending on role and permissions). This is an end user permission.

Development Plans - Edit Grants ability for user to edit a development plan when the Redesigned Development Plans functionality is enabled. The permission constraints determine whose development plans the user can edit. This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, User's Self, and User Self and Subordinates. This is an end user permission. Performance
My Competency Assessments Enables users to view their own competency assessment results from the Competency Assessment Results screen. In addition, when creating a development plan and adding an objective to the plan, this permission enables users to browse recommended training and developmental actions from competency models, when this functionality is enabled in Development Plan Preferences. This is an end user permission. Performance
Recommended Learning - View Recommended Learning for Others Grants ability to view the recommended learning that is generated by machine learning for another user. The availability of this permission is controlled by a backend setting. This permission can be constrained by OU. This is a manager permission. Performance
Snapshot - Development Plans

Enables user to view the Development Plans widget and subpage within the Universal Profile - Snapshot page for users within their permission constraints. This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, User Self and Subordinates, User, User's Self, User's Manager, User's Superiors, User's Subordinates, User's Direct Reports, and Employee Relationship. Best Practice: For most users, this permission should be constrained by User Self and Subordinates.
