Skills can be be managed after clicking on the skills button via the side navbar. There are tables with skills under different tabs. The first tab is the Master skills tab.
The idea behind Master skills, is that you can have a controlled list of skills from where you copy into your different SkillTrees. You can keep this list well organized by categorizing and referencing the skills. You can import skills into the Master skills list in different ways. If you have existing skills in SkillTree compositions, you can copy them over to the Master skills list by selecting the second tab, selecting skills and then copy them (after selection, click on “Edit selected”). For some people there may be a third tab, i.e. your Domain tab. This tab will be available if you have logged in with Microsoft or Google, and you are part of a custom domain (i.e. not “gmail.com” or “outlook.com”). You can also import skills from a csv file. We have provided a template for you. Otherwise, you can use your own Excel sheet, but you will then need to map the title columns to the expected format. You will be guided through the csv import process with a stepper.
You can add an icon to skills. This icon will appear in the skilltree instead of the title in the skill’s node. There are few icons available now. We will work on expanding the list of available icons.
Skills in your skilltrees
You can see skills in your skilltrees, and in the table you can view in which SkillTree composition you have used them. After opening a skill (in the Action column), you can even view the completion status of people who are participating in the skilltree.
You can categorized the skills in this list as well. It’s possible to update the category in the list for multiple skills all at once, by selecting multiple and then click on “Edit selected”.
Skills in your domain
You will automatically become part of a custom domain if:
* You log in with Microsoft or Google
* Your extension is not part of common extensions such as “gmail.com” or “outlook.com”
We will then assume that you are logging in with a company or school account, and you can safely work together with your collegues. This allow for a way to share skills among co-workers. You can use the tab to copy skills from co-workers over to your list of master skills. From there, you can manage them or copy them into your SkillTree compositions.
Copying multiple skills into a skilltree
There is a way to copy multiple skills all at once into a skilltree. This is NOT done from the skills section, but rather it is initiated from the SkillTree Drag and Drop Editor. In the DnD Editor, you will drag the “Master skills” icon onto a skilltree. You will be taken to the skills section, where you can then select multiple skills from one of the tabs. After clicking on “Edit selected”, you will see a button where you can import those skills into the skilltree. Then you will be taken back to the Skilltree DnD Editor so you can rearrange the skills. The imported skills will initially all become new root skills in the tree.
