Delete a Capability Category

Administrators can delete a capability category if the category does not have any subcategories. When a category is deleted, it cannot be restored.

To delete a capability category, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Capabilities > Capability Categories. Then, select the three-dot menu for the category and select Delete.

If the category that is being deleted is associated with one or more capabilities, administrators must determine how to update the associated capabilities. The following options are available:

  • Remove this category from tagged capabilities - Select this option to disassociate the category from the skills without selecting a replacement category.
  • Transfer capabilities to another category - Select this option to replace the deleted category with another category. When this option is selected, you must then specify the replacement category.

Select Proceed to delete the category and update the associated capabilities according to the selected option.
