User interface layout improvements

We’ve made some tweaks to the Skills Base user interface to make it present more consistently across different devices, with particular attention paid to small-factor mobile devices.

As part of this change the color of the menu and header bars have been darkened in order to draw more focus to the page content.

These changes are cosmetic only and there is no changed or introduced functionality to the Skills Base software with this release.

We value your feedback so if you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know.

Updates to terms and conditions

As part of our commitment to providing exceptional customer service, we’ve updated our terms and conditions to make them fairer and clearer.

The previous “Terms and Conditions” document has been split into two documents:

  • Master Subscription Agreement – This agreement is for individuals or individuals acting on behalf of entities (such as organizations) who create a Skills Base Instance and clearly sets out items pertaining to the licensee of a Skills Base instance.
  • Terms of Use – This agreement is for all users of Skills Base services and sets out the roles and responsibilities that all users have when using the services.

The term “Terms and Conditions” will now be used to refer to the suite of documents including the above, our Service Level Agreement (SLA), Privacy Policy, and any other relevant documents.

If you are an existing Skills Base licensee or user, you don’t need to take any action.  By continuing to use our services you agree to the updated terms and conditions.

We hope these updates help provide more clarity and transparency, and ultimately reduce the barriers for your organization.
