Notes for MOSS Users: This widget uses the MOSS User Profile Account property in the Workflow Conductor Control Panel > Account Settings page. This setting specifies a user account that has the Manage User Profiles Shared Services right in Shared Services Administration > Personalization services permissions.
This account is used to access the SharePoint User Profile Properties list.
Access to specific user profile data is security trimmed at runtime based on the permission of the user account configured for the widget in the Run As property.
Notes for WSS Users: The widget will retrieve profile data from the User Information List in the current site collection. Access to SharePoint user profile data is security trimmed at runtime based on the permission of the user account configured for the widget in the Run As property.
