Customer noticed that the Line Manager defaults from the Department manager.

Whenever a new person is hired, after selecting the department, the Line Manager field is automatically populated with the Manager that is set at the Department level.

While performing a change on Department in Classic UI, customer receives a notification saying that the manager will be updated with the department manager and can select either Yes or No and depending on the selection can choose to update the linine manager of the employee or keep the existing one.
