I'd like to track competencies of team members in Confluence.
How would you do this? The trivial approach would be to add every team member as a page where labels would be their competencies. This looks a bit heavy-handed and also I'd like to be able to see a list with all team members and their competencies (to have an overview, not to have to open their page individually, see: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/21633256).
Note that I'm using Confluence Cloud.
Thanks in advance!
We do this. And yes, we have a separate Bio for every engineer and they are all labeled accordingly.
Separate Bios gives us:
The last one requires the Page properties macro on each Bio then the Page properties report macro on a summary page.
We label the Bios with: the primary and secondary general ability (e.g. networking, storage, etc.); the specific skills (e.g. cisco, wireless, emc, sql, etc.); and the area of the country they cover (so we can create lists by region). Some engineers have a dozen labels.
Yes, this took a bit of work, but it was mostly a one-time deal. And yes, all this works on Cloud.
Oh, and management loves it!
We actually don't distinguish between primary and secondary skills in searching, they'll see it when they open the actual bio.
We do have a prefix for certifications though: cert-. That way, we can show a list of who has which certifications separate from the matrix of skills; some of which can have the same name, e.g. cisco.
As an update, I've since added all the project managers and sales folk since the HR software was difficult to update their locations.
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
