Action Items - Planning
Planning tasks appear as actions in the Actions tab in Universal Profile. The following types of tasks appear as actions:
- Complete Headcount Plan [PlanName – AreaName] - This task appears for any planner user who has been assigned a headcount plan, whether as Co-Planner, Primary Planner, or Owner. The status of this task is Assigned. To access the task, click the button, which opens the Planning homepage, not the specific plan that requires action.
- Review Headcount Plan [PlanName – AreaName] - This task appears for senior planners that assigned subplans, once the subplanner submitted the subplan to the senior planner. The status of this task is For Review. To access the task, click the button, which opens the Planning homepage, not the specific plan that requires action.
Users cannot change the status of the action in Universal Profile. The action must be completed in the Planning application, at which point the action is updated to completed on the Universal Profile.
To access the Action Items, go to Note: The location of this link is configurable by your system administrator.
. Then, click the Actions tab.

Jane is the manager of a medium-sized department in a growing business. She is taking part in the annual headcount plan and entering the headcount needs she forecast for the next two years. She has also assigned subplans to a few of the managers below her so that she can get more accurate forecasts for those specific teams.
Using Universal Profile, she is able to see when her plan is due, and she can keep track of when the subplans are returned to her for her review.
