Learning Search – Skills (Capabilities) Filter (Early Adopter)

Prior to this enhancement, the customers with Skills (Capabilities) enabled in their portals were unable to find content for learners based on Skills (Capabilities) related to their trainings.

With this enhancement, the customers who have enabled content tagging or manually updated trainings with Skills (Capabilities) can filter Learning Search results with those skills. The Skills (Capabilities) filter allows learners to find trainings for the Skills (Capabilities) upon which they want to improve.

The Skills (Capabilities) filter can be enabled or disabled anytime for any division in the Learning Search Preferences page. To go to Learning Search Preferences, go to ADMIN > TOOLS > LEARNING > LEARNING PREFERENCES > LEARNING SEARCH PREFERENCES.

Like other filters available in Learning Search, the Skills (Capabilities) Filter is available on Learning Search page when the following criteria are met:

  • The Skills Filter is enabled via Learning Search Preferences.
  • The trainings in the portal are tagged with Skills (Capabilities).
  • The search results have Skills (Capabilities) associated to them.

How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?

The new Skills (Capabilities) search filter helps users find relevant content for their training.
