View Team

The View Team flyout is designed to allow managers, approvers, and custom relationships to quickly navigate between subordinates' profiles and transcripts. When enabled, the View Team flyout is available to managers and dotted line managers on all pages of their Universal Profile and the Universal Profile of their subordinates. This flyout displays the manager's reports visually.

The View Team button only displays if enabled in the portal. Administrators may enable or disable this flyout via the My Team Dropdown section within Universal Profile General Preferences. See Universal Profile General Preferences.

An Options button may be available on various pages of the Universal Profile. See Universal Profile Options Drop-down Overview.

Connect

When viewing the Universal Profile - Bio page of another user, you can send a connection request for the user by clicking the Connect button in the upper-right corner of their profile.

  • If you are not connected to the user, the Connect button is available. Clicking Connect sends a connection request to the user. If enabled, the New Connection Request email is triggered when a connection request is sent.
  • If the user whose page you are viewing has sent you a connection request, but you have not yet responded, then clicking Accept confirms the connection and you are immediately connected. Accepting a connection request from a user automatically follows the user.
  • If you are not connected to the user, but you have already sent a connection request to the user, then "Connection Pending" is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • If you are already connected to the user, then Connected is displayed and the button is disabled.
  • When sending a connection request, this automatically follows the user. This occurs immediately and does not require the user to accept the connection request.

Below the Connect button, the Bio - Connect widget displays the following information:

  • Connections - This displays the number of connections the user has.
  • Mutual - This displays the people to whom you are both connected.
  • Followers - This displays the number of followers the user has.

At the top of the page, the information that is displayed about the user is determined by the administrator.

The user's photo may be displayed. Click the photo to view an enlarged version of the photo in a pop-up. In addition, the following user information may be displayed:

  • User's First and Last Name

Bio Page Subtabs

The following subtabs may be available on the Bio page:

Resume Sections

Within the Resume section, the following sections may appear:

  • Previous Position
  • Current Position
  • Prior Experience
  • Education
  • Skills
  • Key Accomplishments
  • Competencies
  • Awards
  • Certifications
  • Licenses
  • Role/Experience
  • Special Training/Development
  • Background Experience
  • Internal Positions

For sections with a date field or date range field, entries are displayed in reverse chronological order with the most recent entries displayed at the top of the section. If a single entry has more than one date or date range field, then entries are sorted in reverse chronological order using the date or date range field in the lowest position number. For example, if there are date range fields in position 2 and 7, then the entries are ordered using the date range field in position 2.

For sections without a date field or date range field, entries are ordered in the order in which they are added to the section, with the most recently added entries displayed at the top of the section.

Each Resume section entry is limited to six lines. If an entry exceeds six lines, then the entry is truncated and a more... link appears at the end of the sixth line. Click the link to expand the entry to display all lines.

Max Items

Administrators can define the maximum number of items that can be selected for each section on the Resume tab. If a maximum is defined for a section, then the maximum number of entries is displayed in the section header. For example, if the maximum number of skills that can be selected is set to three, then "Max 3" is displayed in the Skills section header. If no maximum is defined for a section, then no maximum is displayed in the section header.

If you attempt to select more items than is allowed for the section, then an error message is displayed.

If you have already selected the maximum number of allowed items for a section, then you must remove one or more selection before you can add a new item.

Resume Section Entry - Add

To add an entry to any of the Resume sections, click the plus icon to the right of the section heading. Depending on how the administrator configured the resume section, you may be able to add more than one item to the section at a time.

If the section IS NOT configured to allow you to select more than one item at a time, then a new, blank entry is added at the top of the section. Which fields are available for each section is dependent upon which fields are defined for the section by the administrator in Resume Administration. See the Resume Section Entry - Edit section below for additional information.

If the section IS configured to allow you to select more than one item at a time, then a text box is displayed, which allows you to type the name of a skill in the text box. As you enter text in the Search field, predictive search results appear in a menu below the field. You can select an item from the predictive search results, and it will be added above the Search field.

If the section IS configured to allow you to select more than one item at a time, you can also select the View Full List link below the Search field to browse all items for the Resume section. Select the Arrow icon next to a category to view items within the category. If an item in the list is already on the user's Resume, then "Currently on resume" is displayed next to the item. When you select an item, it will be added above the Search field.

After selecting the appropriate items, select the Done button to configure the selected items. Each selected item is added as an entry in the Resume section, and you must add additional information for each item. For example, for each skill that is selected, you must add information such as Proficiency, Years of experience, etc. See the Resume Section Entry - Edit section below for additional information.
