People Display

When opening to view a person, sections automatically display only if they are enabled in People preferences. You can open disabled sections from the icons in the Navigation Icons Panel or the Expanded Treeview in the Browse Panel.

Note: The enabled sections that automatically display when you initially select a person are in read-only mode.

 Summary Panel

A summary (metadata) of the selected person appears as the first section of the detail.

 Summary Panel

The summary gives a top-level overview of the person. The system assigns the status and the person’s ID. Your local configuration may generate other information.

People Actions

The actions you can take on a person depend on your local configuration and permissions. For example, a read-only permission may apply to people to which you are not the associated with.

  • Deactivate a person
  • Restrict view and modification of a person.
  • Refresh the people page.
