Hide Legacy Skills Tab on Edit Training Page UI with the November '23 Release

Prior to this deprecation, Cornerstone CSX had two systems of skills: legacy Skills and Skills (Capabilities). Legacy Skills is an older functionality, while Skills (Capabilities) is the current system powered by the machine learning of the Cornerstone Skills Graph. The CSX customer base widely utilizes skills (Capabilities) and receives constant innovation through enhancements. The legacy Skill system, which gets no ongoing support, exists as a separate functionality that uses a different dataset of skills compared to Skills (Capabilities).

With this November 2023 release, the legacy Skills tab will be default hidden from the Edit Training page UI in the Course Catalog. Administrators can contact Global Customer Support to retain the Skills tab on the UI. When the deprecation occurs with the November 2023 release, the legacy “Skills” tab will be hidden from the UI by default.

To access the legacy Skills tab in Edit Training, go to ADMIN > TOOLS > LEARNING > CATALOG MANAGEMENT > COURSE CATALOG > EDIT > SKILLS.

How Does this Deprecation Benefit My Organization?

This deprecation removes the confusion caused by two distinct collections of skills related to content but also allows administrators to keep the Skills tab visible if required.


  • This deprecation only affects the display of legacy Skills on Content. No other area of CSX that uses the legacy Skills dataset is affected by this change.
  • Customers can opt-out to keep the legacy Skills tab visible. To do so without disruption to the legacy Skills tab, contact Global Customer Support before November 9, 2023.


The deprecation of this functionality is controlled by a backend setting that will be enabled by default on November 17, 2023. Support for the legacy Skill tab will be stopped from November 17, 2023.
