New features released in the last quarter

We’ve been working hard to make Skills Base the best Skills Management tool on the web. Here are some of the new features released in the last quarter.

Rating scheme

You can now control in detail how skills and interest levels are scored thanks to the rating scheme editor. You can fully configure the scoring range based on your preference, from zero to 10, and choose the labels associated with each.

You can upload any number of attachments to be associated with a person. This can be used to attach resumes, qualification documents, or images. (Note that adding attachments is only available to paid license holders due to the storage size required).

People with similar skills

The new “People with Similar Skills” list shows you other people within the organization that have close skill matches. This allows you for example to quickly locate alternative personnel for projects when the primary resource is not available.
