What is the difference between Created for, Assigned to, and Supervisor?

To illustrate the difference between Assigned to, Created for, and Supervisor, let's use the example of your organization requiring frontline staff to complete CPR training every 2 years. In this example:

  1. Jane is an employee who is accredited to provide the training and must certify that the training was completed successfully.
  1. Kevin is a new hire who needs to complete his CPR training.
  1. Lina is Kevin’s Supervisor and needs to approve Kevin's training.
  1. You are the HR Admin person for your organization. 

For this example:

  1. Jane is "Assigned to" the Activity because she is responsible for ensuring the training is completed.
  2. Kevin is the employee the Activity was "Created for" because the record of completed CPR training needs to be on his record.
  3. Lina is Kevin's Supervisor. She might be "Following" the Activity.
  4. You, as the PartnerHR Admin, need to ensure a record is kept in PartnerHR and that reminders are sent when training is due again.
