I've got a working AD->SharePoint 2010 user sync running and also have 2-way updating specificed for for some of the user profile fields via the users' My Site.
While this is very handy for contact lists and org charts, the organisation would like to maintain some control of the updates by having user detail changes go through an approval process (i.e. all updates to be approved by their manager first).
After much clicking around and many search engine queries, I haven't found any solution (or even questions) for this requirement.
As one of the aims is to keep the environment 'out of the box', is it possible to do this within SharePoint without 3rd party tools or custom development?
