Domino Administrator doesn't include the ability to set the Setup Profile names
in Person docs without manually editing each one. Borrrring.
This Action (part of the People view) lets you pick one or more Setup Profiles
and then writes the Setup Profile names to the Person document(s) selected in
the People View. Call the action something like "Choose Setup Profile".
This allows Dynamic Configuration to pick the Setup Profile information even
though you didn't originally create the Person using Setup Profiles.
Note: Any existing profile name is in the Person doc is overwritten, so be sure
to pick all the Setup Profiles that apply to all selected people!
Danger: The Actions menu in Domino Administrator has an entry "Remove
Profile". This has nothing to do with Setup Profiles, but rather removes the
Directory Profile! This is a BAD action, as it nukes all of your Directory
Profile settings for your Domino Directory (such as the Domain and Directory
Catalog names). grrrrrr. You should change the design of your NAB to ditch
this BAD action!
