Depending on your platform settings, you may be asked to identify your skills on the basis of your job, and to carry out a self-evaluation on them. Take some time to select your skills and to self-evaluate them, so that your platform will then help you in filling your gaps and deepen your knowledge on the areas you are already familiar with.
Once you have identified and self-evaluated your skills, your platform then will then populate the My Skills channel with different types of content, depending on how the platform Admin set up the platform:
- formal courses associated with the skills you have identified for yourself
- assets and contributions loaded by other users and associated to the skills you have identified
In addition, you can take advantage of the Skills Dashboard page for an overview of your skills: progress, available content, and feedback from your manager. Learn more on the Skills Dashboard.
Identifying and Self-Evaluating Your Skills
Every time the Admin of your platform assigns you to a set of skills, upon logging in you will see a pop-up informing you that you can select your skills out of the set, and perform a self-evaluation on them. You may see the pop-up several times, depending on when your Admin activates new sets of skills and associates them to you.
Click Get Started if you want to take some time for this activity, or Not Now to postpone it. There is no time limitation for this activity, but we suggest you start your upskilling process as soon as possible.
After clicking Get Started, the skills selection process will ask you to identify your job in the company, so that the platform can suggest the skills in line with your position. Start typing your job description, select one of the available options proposed by the autocomplete function and press Next to proceed.
Select now up to 10 skills among those suggested. Depending on the platform configuration, you may have the possibility to look for other skills manually. You will be able to select more skills later in the My Skills section of your profile or in your Skills Dashboard, up to 50 skills in total. Press Next and self-evaluate yourself on the skills you have selected. When done, click on Save to complete the process.
You can change the selection of your skills at any time by accessing the My Profile area of your platform from your main menu and moving to the My Skills section or from your Skills Dashboard.
Managing Your Skills
If you have already configured your skills in your platform and you want to make some changes, go to the My Skills section of the My Profile area. To do so, click on the pen icon in your main menu to enter your My Profile page, then move to the My Skills vertical tab.
On the My Skills page, you will view the job that you have previously selected, but you can change it by clicking on Change Job, so that we can recommend some skills in line with your new position.
On the page, you will also see the list of skills that you selected, and the level you set during your self-evaluation. You can Update Rating or Delete the skills. Click on the ellipsis icon in the skill’s row in the list to find the two options. Please note that if you delete a skill, you will no longer receive updates on the content related to that skill.
If you want to add new skills, click on Add Skills on the My Skills page, then select one or more skills among those suggested. You may have the possibility to look for other skills manually, using the search box. Click on Next and self-evaluate yourself on the skills you have selected. When finished, click on Save to complete the process.
As an alternative, you can manage your skills from your Skills Dashboard.
You can set a maximum of 50 skills on your My Skills or Skills Dashboard page.
Please note: if you have selected a skill within a skill set, and your admin removes that skill from the skill set, you will continue to see the skill associated with your profile.
The My Skills Channel
Once you have completed your self-evaluation, you will be automatically redirected to the main page of the My Skills channel, already populated with content related to the skills you have selected.
Please note: the channel can also be called in another way, depending on your Superadmin configuration.
Use the Filters panel to filter the displayed content according to one or more of your skills or to the content publication period.
