Skills Quick Start Wizard - Overview

With this enhancement, a new Skills Quick Start Wizard is now available. The Skills Quick Start Wizard administrator experience guides administrators through the key steps of implementing or optimizing their Skills framework. The experience provides detailed text that explains concepts and best practices, and it provides links to useful resources and Capability administrative tools. Each step is automatically marked complete as administrators progress through the wizard, tracking progress towards completion.

Even if an organization has already enabled Capabilities, the Skills Quick Start Wizard can still be launched to refine the existing configuration or learn about new concepts and features that may not be in use with the current deployment.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

Administrators who are implementing a Skills framework for the first time or are unfamiliar with the Cornerstone’s Capabilities can use the Skills Quick Start Wizard to easily build their organization’s skills library, configure important settings, enable user permissions, and get help with internal promotion and messaging to quickly start leveraging skills in their organization.
