Setup checklist for goals

Configure the process for employees and managers creating goals in CompetencyCore

In this article:

Step 1. Allow shared or private goals

You can configure whether goals on your CompetencyCore site are all shared, all private, or both. Private goals make space for employees to explore new learning opportunities without adding qualifications to their public profile. Shared goals allow managers to get involved; they can create goals for their reports, provide input, and review their progress. HR can also create shared goals for employees from the People page. 

  1. Click the gear icon on the top right of your screen.
  2. Click Goals in the Administration menu.
  3. Select Shared Only, Private Only, or Shared and Private.
  4. Click Save.

Share settings for goals

Note: Changing this setting doesn’t change the status of existing goals. If the setting is changed to All Shared, employees have the option to share private goals.

Step 2. Assign library types

We support three types of challenges that users can add to their goals: competencies, knowledge, and certifications. Competencies are required, but knowledge and certifications are optional. Follow the steps in the Manage library types article to make them available.

Step 3. Control access to learning resources

Employees can browse learning resources to help them complete a task. Here are the options available for each type of challenge.

  • Competencies: Internal resources and external resources (LinkedIn Learning and Udemy).
  • Knowledge: External resources (LinkedIn Learning and Udemy).
  • Certifications: No resources available.

Follow the steps below to control if these options appear.

  1. Click the gear icon on the top right of your screen.
  2. Click Goals in the Administration menu.
  3. Select Allow Access to allow users to view internal resources and add them to a checklist.
  4. Select LinkedIn Learning and Udemy to display links for users to browse relevant classes.
  5. Click Save.

Step 4. Consider how goals affect employee profiles

The validation process for employee profiles will also apply to goals. Check out Add a profile validation process for more information.

For competency challenges, employees request validation for individual tasks. Once requested, in-progress competencies are displayed on their profile. When 70% of competency tasks are validated, the competency starts contributing to job matching.

Step 5. Grant user access to goals

Turn on the Access Goals permission for the security profiles on your site.

  1. Click the gear icon on the top right of your screen.
  2. Click Security Profiles in the Administration menu.
  3. Click the shield icon beside a security profile.
  4. Click Goals in the Permissions menu.
  5. Select Access Goals and click Save.
