Active substitute can access appraisal documents


We are using the new Objective Setting & Appraisals functionality via ESS / MSS in SAP ERP Central Component 5.0.

When a line manager makes another line manager their substitute, the substitute line manager has READ access to the other manager's appraisal document and the other manager's line manager's appraisal document. Has anyone experienced this problem?

If the substitute manager gets an appraisal workflow item initiated from someone in the original manager's team then the substitute manager can access the appraisal and make changes to it. Is this standard functionality?

Hi janet,

Whether a substitute should get access to a workitem or not can be controlled in the workflow by creating profiles. When the owner assigns the substitute he can specify the profile, so that the substitute can see the workitems with that profile. This is part of standard workflow settings which you can explore.

Best regards
