Adding and endorsing skills

You feature skills on your profile by adding them, and you endorse other user's skills by going to their profiles.

Skills not only provide more information about others in your community, but they also tag people with those skills, so when you search the community for users, you can filter by skills.

To add skills to your own profile:

  1. Go to Your Avatar > View Profile to view your profile.
  2. Under Skills and Expertise, click New skill and type your skills.

    Select a tag, or create a new one — just type a word or phrase and press Enter to turn it into a tag.

  3. Click Add to save your skills.

To endorse the skills of another user:

  1. Go to their profile.
  2. Under Skills, click Endorse and type their skills.
  3. Click Endorse to save the skills.

Community users need to accept new endorsements via an Inbox notification before they show up in their profile. You can see new skill alerts in your activity once community users approve endorsements. To back up an existing endorsement, click the plus sign next to the skill listed in their Skills card.
