In a list, I have a column for users. When I click on the username it opens up the user profile panel with information gotten from AD for that user. This is good.
You would think that if I clicked on "Edit Item" of a user's profile that I would get that user's profile, and be able to edit it. Actually, when I pull up the "Edit Personal Settings" panel (by clicking on "Edit Item" in "User Information" accessible through the welcome dropdown button), the little panel flashes almost like it was going to show me another tab, then that extra tab disappears.
Now, I don't want to use mysites at all (my users don't need special profiles). I want everything to work through AD only, and use that "Edit Item" panel - like it did in Sharepoint Services 2007.
What am I missing, and how do I get it to work the right way?
[about two weeks later...] I am still stuck here. Anybody have a clue for me? Aside from the UPS thing, the question to answer is how to get the "Edit Item" panel to display items for editing!
