MyTeam Certifications - Manage

Enables managers To view details of direct and indirect reports' (or others depending on constraints) certifications (old designations module - retired May 2019). This permission can be constrained by OU, User's OU, and User's Direct Reports. This is primarily a manager permission. The permission constraints determine for which users the Certifications tab is available when viewing a user in My Team.

Note: By design, for any My Team permission that is included in the Manager default security role, all of the manager's direct and indirect reports are included in the constraints, even if they are not selected in the permission constraints for the role.

Note: If the user's permission is also constrained by User Self and Subordinates, then this overrides the User's Direct Reports constraint.
