Improvements to Authority Manager System

View of the new Authority Manager homepage.
Jun 8 2021

New features and functionality launch in the Authority Manager application starting June 21.

Authority Manager is the Stanford-developed tool used to grant employees access to the university's many administrative systems. As the number of business applications used at Stanford increases, keeping track of who has authority to access data and perform administrative tasks becomes more complex. Stanford managers have communicated their desire for updated functionality to make the processes for managing authority more efficient. 

In a collaborative effort across Business Affairs, University HR and the distributed schools and units, the project team is releasing improvements that will make it much easier to grant and manage privileges. Staff will notice changes when they open the app, but the core functions of viewing, granting, and revoking authority will still look and feel familiar.
