  • We recommend you try to avoid deleting a skill and instead edit if you want to make a change. However, if you wish to delete a skill simply click on 'Delete' and the skill will be deleted along with every record of that skill on user profiles, but not on requests.
  • We recommend you try to limit the extent you edit existing skills, however, if you wish to edit a skill, click on 'Edit' and in the subsequent pop-up enter the amended skills details and then click 'Save & update all users with this skill'. Please note changing a skill will make that change reflect across every user who has that skill assigned to their profile. This is especially important to consider when changing the skill significantly because the users who have the original skill may not have the updated skill. If you do not wish to make the amendments, instead click 'Cancel'.
