Appraiser Authorization Issue (Objective Settings and Appraisals)


We are currently using Objective Settings and Appraisals for our

performance appraisals. ESS and MSS is also used during the process. We

do not use structural authorizations either.

Authorizations work fine for the vast majority of employees. However, we have an issue with some of our Human Resources users. For his/her ID they have authorization to certain personnel areas. However, his/her appraiser is in a personnel area they do not have authorization for. As a result, the appraisal does not show up when the user access ESS to work on their appraisal.

For example we have an HR user who has access to information in

personnel area 1081. However, her appraiser/manager is actually in 2054. As

a result when she accesses her appraisal it says no entries exist.

One solution we tried was selecting the 'No Authorization Check for Appraiser' on the

template. With this selected, the appraisal shows up with the personnel

number of the appraiser on the listing. When the appraisal is accessed

and the user tries to perform an action, the following error pops up stating the

appraisee person is not allowed and it has the appraiser number within

the error message.

Currently, we have the HR employee using a different ID for ESS that allows the

user to access the appraisal. Is there anything standard that will

allow the user to view the appraisal without using a different ID?
