Capabilities Library - Manage Capabilities

Capabilities describe what a person can do or what they know. The Capabilities Library enables administrators to view, create, edit, and delete capabilities. Once capabilities are available, users can add them to their profile as skills they have or skills they would like to develop.

Important: The Capabilities and Skills Profile functionality is currently in an Open Beta status. As a result, the functionality is evolving weekly, and this documentation may become out of date or incomplete. The next scheduled update of this documentation is scheduled for the February 2021 release. For feature updates and the most up-to-date documentation, please visit the Capabilities Beta community in the Cornerstone Success Center.

To access the Capabilities Library, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Capabilities > Library.
