When a manager assigns someone to serve as their proxy in the User Application, that user cannot initiate any workflows on behalf of them. How can proxy users initiate workflows on behalf of that manager?


In the current 3.0.x releases of the Novell User Application, it is not possible for users assigned as a proxy for a manager to initiate workflows on behalf of the manager. A Request For Enhancement (RFE) was entered to allow for proxy users to initiate the manager's workflows. Development is taking this Enhancement under consideration to be addressed in a future release of the User Application.
