Manager Functionality in My LINC

U-M managers can track their employees' training using functionality in My LINC. Anyone listed as a supervisor on an employee's job record in the M-Pathways system should see a "Manager" button at the top of their My LINC home page. The functionality allows managers to view the assigned training status and training transcripts of their direct reports.

For additional information on using the Manager functions, see Using Manager Mode - Step-by-Step Procedure.
