Applications Administration Guide > Initial Setup >
At the levels of organizations, positions, and employees, you can add skills. Skills are used for assigning employees to certain projects, service requests, and so on. Skills added to an organization apply to all employees assigned to that organization. Skills assigned to a position apply only to the employee assigned to that position. You create skills with Siebel Tools.
Employees can track and update their own skill profiles in the User Preferences Profile view.
For more information about how your Siebel application uses skills, see Siebel Assignment Manager Administration Guide.
