It seems at the moment that everyone in our organization reports to the HR manager and I'd love to know how to correct this. We have various subsidiaries and up until now I think there hasn't been much attention paid to how MS 365 is setup in terms of User Profiles. 

 

Is it possible to delegate permissions to manage a user's Contact Information to line managers in Microsoft 365?

E.g. If I search for a user in MS365 I see the user, but the information is outdated. Speaking to the administrators they don't have the time to keep up with this, but line managers do.

 

I've scanned through various roles in admin to see how this can be done, but none seem to match the requirement, without allowing them to do too much.

 

Examples of what I'd like line managers to be able to update:
1. Manager (who the user reports to)
2. Contact Information (contact number, street address, etc.)

We're trying to build up helpful information on staff members for tools such as Delve or search where we can find people based on skills they may have which can help other members. In order to do this we need to be able to delegate this to line managers.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
