Search the Skills Graph

With this enhancement, administrators can now search for any skill and import it into their organization’s Capabilities Library. When creating a skill, an auto-complete drop-down suggests skills from the Skills Graph and helps identify any duplicates that are already in the portal’s library. Once a skill is imported, the description is displayed as a preview and can be modified at any time for clarity or to align with an organization’s communication style. Administrators are free to ignore suggestions and can create custom skills.

Also new with this release, administrators can choose to allow users to search the entire Skills Graph or limit their search to skills in their portal’s Capabilities Library. When the new preference to allow users to search the Skills Graph is enabled, users can search and add any skill from the Skills Graph to their Skills Profile. Skills that are added to a user’s Skills Profile from the Skills Graph are automatically imported into a portal’s Capabilities Library in a published/active status.
