  9. (Optional) In the More Info form, fill in the Skill Min Score and Availability Min Score fields.
  10. (Optional) Click the menu button, and then click Apply Min Score.
  11. This applies the filters entered in Step 7 to the Potential Resources view. The Skill # Found and Availability # Found fields are populated with the number of qualified candidates.
