Take a screenshot of the issue and send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will help you resolve the problem as soon as we can. Please make sure to tell us what email you used when you signed up with MuchSkills.
We are sorry. The current version of MuchSkills doesn’t allow you to change your email after signing up. But feel free to send us an email at email@example.com and we will help you in any way possible.
You can do that by tapping or clicking the bubbles in your Skills page. You can also click and drag from anywhere on the bubble that you want to increase or decrease the size of. Dragging up will increase the size and dragging down will decrease the size.
Note: Depending on how you increase/decrease the size of one skill bubble, the other bubbles around will diminish or increase in size. We believe creating a priority of the most important bubbles is central to how we look at skills.
On the desktop, click on your profile picture at the top right corner of the screen (bottom right for Mobile), a dropdown menu will open up. Look for 'Settings’ and click on it. On this page, you can upload a new image, change your unique handle and password.
In order to share your profile you have to ensure that your profile is completed. You will be guided through the steps after you sign in.
Once your profile is all ready make it public.
After you've done this. You can click the share icon on your profile and pick from the different sharing options.
To do this, you first need to ensure that your profile is set to ‘Public’. This can only be done if your account email has been verified and if your entire profile is complete.
If the above conditions are met, you can make your profile ‘Public’. To do this, you must visit your Profile page by clicking on your profile image. On the next page on the top left you will see a button saying 'EDIT PROFILE'. Click the button and you will be taken to your editable Profile page. Under the section that says 'VISIBILITY', turn the switch ON. Now press the 'SAVE' button. You are now taken to your profile page where you can see a share icon next to your name. Click on it to get different alternatives for how you can share your profile.
On your profile page, your Job Focus is pinned to the top by default. In order to change that, look for the small dropdown arrow to the top right of the skill card you want at the centre. Click on it, and pick the option ‘Pin to the top’. You have this option for Job Focus, Soft Skills, and Technical Skills.
Here you can make small notes about how you want to grow as a professional. What skills and skill sets do you want to develop, what are your goals, where do you want to be next year, and what should your future job focus be. These notes will be perfect for when you sit down for your next one-on-one with your boss where you discuss how you can grow within your team or organization.
We do not support the embedding function as of today. But it is something we want to build in the near future.
A quick work around is for you to simply take a screenshot of your profile and share the image on your website or portfolio, and link it to your personal MuchSkills public profile.
We also recommend that you make your profile public and share it in your emails and on your website/profile/Linkedin.
Go to the Dashboard and at the top of the page you can set your availability. Click on either Vacation or Planned leave. Vacation is when you are 100% off between two dates. Planned leave is for things like parental leave or non-full time working agreements.
Your availability is a summary of the availability you have set such as Vacation & Planned leave plus all the projects you are scheduled to work in. If you are scheduled in a project it will show that you are unavailable. We are working on improving the visualization of the availability feature to visualize more granular information, but for now it is simplified.
A team allows you to be a part of a closed network of people that share their skills amongst each other. The most common use case is when you work in a company or an organization. In this case, the company is deemed as a Team. You can search the skills of your colleagues and see what is their Job Focus, Soft skills and even technical expertise. As a member of a team, you also get an overview of the entire team's collective skill set.
You can create a team even if it's not an organization or company. Teams work great for a close group of people as well that want to share their skills with each other. Example - Photographers of Gothenburg or UX Designers in NY, Service Designers of Spain, Friends of MuchSkills etc.
Click on your profile image to expand the menu. Here you can see all teams you are a member of. Click on the one you are looking for and you will be taken to the team overview directly.
There is no limit. You can join as many teams and companies as you like. We understand that today many people can be involved with many different organizations at the same time.
In MuchSkills click on TEAM and then click Create a team. If you are already part of a team and want to create a new one click on your profile image and click on Create a team.
Enter a team name and set a unique URL. A team can be anything - your best friends, a creative work group, a team at work or an entire organization. When you are done click next.
Now it's time to invite people. Simply fill in the email for who you want to invite. Or create an invite link that you share with everyone you want to join.
In the menu, click on TEAM. Choose what skill category you want to search within – Job Focus, Soft skills or Technical Skill – and type in the skill you are looking for in the search field. When the skill appears, click on it to get a full list of individuals with the specific skill. Make sure you try to search for different ways to describe the skill you are looking for.
This is a smart way to filter the entire teams’ skill overview. When hearts are selected, the skill bubbles will show a summary of how interested and important these skills are for everyone in the team. If you select people, the bubbles will show the number of people that have a specific skill. Use the hearts feature to see what your team feels is their core superpower.
You see this view when you are in the Team overview page. The yellow circles indicate when an individual is unavailable because they are either already involved in a project, or on vacation or on parental leave. Black circles mean that the team members are available to join a project.
For now, availability is only shown ‘as of today’.
Example: Let’s say a circle shows 5 people that have this skill. The circle will be partly yellow and this indicates that one or several people that possess this skill are currently either on vacation, leave or in a project.
If you are looking for a more sophisticated availability mapping, you can get that when you start a project and search for individuals to join the project team.
The number indicates the total number of people that possess this skill and that are available as of today.
In order to create a Project Team, you need to already be a part of a team. Assuming you are, you can click on the PROJECT tab on the top menu and follow the instructions of defining what the project is all about.
Set tags so that in the future when you look for old projects, you can quickly find them. As an example, you can add tags such as: android, app, transportation, workshop, etc
First, click PROJECTS in the menu and click CREATE A PROJECT. Fill in all details about the project and select skills. Click on the skill bubble to add it to your project. You can search for a skill using the search filter or you can find skills based on functions such as Marketing, Design, Sales, etc.
First, select all skills for your project. When you have selected all skills click 'Done'. You will be presented with a list of team members that have the required skills to join the project.
Pick the individuals that you think are best suited for the project. Doing so, you will see the greyed out bubbles turn black indicating that the person you added possesses those skills.
Once all bubbles are black and you have selected the appropriate people for the project click the 'Confirm' button.
