About the Differences between MyServices Professional and MyServices Consumer
MyServices Professional is different from MyServices Consumer in the following ways:
- There are Common Tasks links on the home page for Order on Behalf and for Authorizations (if the Authorization portlet is enabled in the user's profile).
- Automatically grants the Order on Behalf permission for all people in the Home OU of the MyServices Professional user.
- Adds the "Authorizations for Others" view on the Authorizations page. This view allows the MyServices Professional user to view -- but not perform -- all Authorizations for people in their Home OU.
See the attached file for more detail and screenshots of: MyServices Consumer with and without the Order on Behalf link displayed, and Requisition and Authorization list views; MyServices Professional Home page with and without the Authorizations portlet visible, and Requisition and Authorization list views.
Note: RequestCenter 2006 cannot be configured to automatically add users to MyServices Professional on creation of their user record via directory integration. This can be accomplished in RC2007, since roles can be imported from LDAP in that version.
