Troubleshooting Information

The following page contains an administrator's guide for configuring the Universal Profile:

View Team

The View Team flyout is designed to allow managers, approvers, and custom relationships to quickly navigate between subordinates' profiles and transcripts. When enabled, the View Team flyout is available to managers and dotted line managers on all pages of their Universal Profile and the Universal Profile of their subordinates. This flyout displays the manager's reports visually.

The View Team button only displays if enabled in the portal. Administrators may enable or disable this flyout via the My Team Dropdown section within Universal Profile General Preferences. See Universal Profile General Preferences.

See Universal Profile - View Team Flyout.

Options

An Options button may be available on various pages of the Universal Profile. See Universal Profile Options Drop-down Overview.

Connect

When viewing the Universal Profile - Bio page of another user, you can send a connection request for the user by clicking the Connect button in the upper-right corner of their profile.

  • If you are not connected to the user, the Connect button is available. Clicking Connect sends a connection request to the user. If enabled, the New Connection Request email is triggered when a connection request is sent.
  • If the user whose page you are viewing has sent you a connection request, but you have not yet responded, then clicking Accept confirms the connection and you are immediately connected. Accepting a connection request from a user automatically follows the user.
  • If you are not connected to the user, but you have already sent a connection request to the user, then "Connection Pending" is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • If you are already connected to the user, then Connected is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • When sending a connection request, this automatically follows the user. This occurs immediately and does not require the user to accept the connection request.

Below the Connect button, the Bio - Connect widget displays the following information:

  • Connections - This displays the number of connections the user has.
  • Mutual - This displays the people to whom you are both connected.
  • Followers - This displays the number of followers the user has.
