How do skills on Progression work?

A skill on Progression is a collection of content representing anything that can be measured. In short, while we call them skills, they could equally be behaviours, values or other attributes that you can describe and would expect people to be measured on when doing their jobs.

Your skills live in your skills page: app.progressionapp.com/org/skills. You can add more skills from our library or create new skills from scratch. We're working on importers so you can use your existing spreadsheet to quickly bring skills into the team.

A skill has a set of 'levels' which you can assign to individual positions in your teams. So for example if you have a skill with 5 levels, and you want to assign that skill to your team, you'd add the skill to that team's framework then pick one of the 5 levels of the skill for each position in the framework.

Can I order skills?

Yes! You can re-order skills in your framework by opening the 'edit / add' menu in the framework view, choosing 'edit skills and categories' then dragging each skills' handle (the little = sign) to different places within or across categories.

How do I find a skill ID?

You can find a skill ID in two ways

  1. Download your list of skills as a CSV (you can do that on your skills page) and open the CSV. Each skill will have the id listed in the first column.

  2. Open a skill as a page. In the URL you'll see `skill/[string of letters and numbers]`. This string is the ID of the skill.
