User has Contribute permissions. When they edit a document's properties they cannot fill a People Picker field but they can fill the other fields

  • When we were on 2007 they could and now we are on 2013 they can't. Has the Contribute permission changed between the versions?

  • What permission do they need to add the name?

  • I don't think that's a permission issue. I would rather look into the configuration of your "Profile Service". Review the permissions of the service, the farm account and the synchronization settings. – Wout Nov 18 '15 at 13:58
  • I assumed it was a permissions issue because of the message they could see. Where would I find the Profile Service? – Enilorac Nov 18 '15 at 14:40
