I'd like let user to update their particular self user account information such as Phone informaton or Department Information. It seems that it is not allowed by default in AD. I know deligation wizard might help but I'm not sure if it can restrict the access to "self". I don't want user to change another peoples information. Also want to be flexible to permit/restrict updateable field.
