Creates a simple, secure delegation system whereby a privileged user (such as an administrator) can assign other registered BuddyPress members to be “delegates” for a given user. A delegate has the capability to view and edit Extended Profile (XProfile) fields for the delegated user. This is useful on sites where certain relationships exist between one user and another, such as legal guardianship by an adult over a child. Using delegation reduces the need to share passwords or log in to shared accounts.
