MOSS 2007 - User can't edit user profiles.

Hi All,

Please help me with this MOSS permissions issue.

I have a user who need to be able to update User Profiles in MOSS 2007.  

I have given this user the following permissions:
Shared Services Administration > Shared Services MySite > Personalization Services Permissions.
I checked all available boxes so her permissions show as follows: Manage Analytics, Manage Audiences, Manage User Profiles, Personal Features, Personal Site, Set Permissions

When she goes into the SSP and clicks User Profiles and Properties > View User Profiles, she does not get the drop down list which would allow her to select edit and update the profile.

I do see the drop down list, and I know that we had an employee who has left the company that was updating these profiles so I know that it can be done.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be going on?

I wasn't able to reproduce your issue. I granted my test account ONLY "Manage User Profiles" and the drop down to edit user profile was available.

The only thing I can think of is something is funky with your Internet Explorer (maybe javascript error). Have the user try it on your machine that is working.

Otherwise try granting only the "Manage User Profile" rights, which doesn't make any sense.

You were exactly right, I logged in as her on my machine and I was able to edit user profiles.  So, we'll resolve the issue with her browser.
