On the user record there is a field called "Manager". It is a standard user object field. I would like to give my users the permission to edit this field themselves, however in the field level security settings on the profile I cannot find this field. Is it possible to allow users somehow to edit it? Tia, Lily

It's not possible to open up this field for Users. Only user with Manage Users and Manage Internal Users permission are allowed to update the field.

You can apply a workaround but that will require either APEX code or Flow Process Builder. A nice example of the latter can be found here:
