Configuration Added to Content Skills Tagging Enablement Page

With this enhancement, the Content Skills Tagging page now includes a configuration setting that enables administrators to choose whether skills detected from machine learning are automatically tagged to a Learning Object (LO) or only marked as ‘Suggested’.

If the configuration setting is set to “Yes, automatically tag my content with skills (Recommended)”, the detected skills are automatically added to an LO. If the configuration setting is set to “No, I would like machine learning to only suggest skills for my content”, the detected skills are saved as ‘Suggested’ for an LO.

Note: Regardless of the configuration, administrators may continue to manually add skills to LOs via Edge Import.

To access Configuration Setting on the Content Skills Tagging page, go to ADMIN > TOOLS > CORE FUNCTIONS > CAPABILITIES > PREFERENCES > CONTENT SKILLS TAGGING > CONFIGURATION SETTING. After selecting an option, click Enable and Run Now.

The enhancement affects the status shown on the Training Capabilities report in Reporting 2.0, what skills are shown on the Course Console, and which Learning Objects (LO) are shown as results in the Related Learning widget and Search's Skills filter.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

  • Grants control over what skills are tagged to content and their effect on the Skills Filter in Search and Related Learning results.
  • Improved UI for the page and clearer user flow for the skills enablement process.
  • Affects what Learning Objects are shown via the Skills Filter in Search, and Related Learning results (from their Skills Profile).


  • If the configuration is set to ‘No, I would like machine learning to only suggest skills for my content’, the LOs shown in the Related Learning widget and the Skills Filter for Search are only impacted by administrator-tagged skills.
  • As Suggested Skills do not influence the Related Learning widget or the Skills filter, the onus falls on the administrator to tag content with skills manually if they select the configuration ‘No, I would like machine learning to only suggest skills for my content’.
  • A customer’s custom skills are only considered in Content Skills Tagging if they are marked as equivalent to a Skills Graph skill (See Linked Skills in Online Help).
