Managing Unassigned Role's Competency Requirements

Competency requirements can be added to project's unassigned roles. By hovering over the desired role you can see a little pen icon. This forwards you to the 'Project Member Details' which has a tab called 'Competency requirements'.

This information can be used later on to find a suitable member to fill  the unassigned role.

Adding Competencies to an Unassigned Role


Adding competencies to an unassigned role consists of three steps, which are further explained below (also in the screenshot below):

1) Select the competencies (SQL, Java, CSS, .NET, ASP.NET)
2) Set the minimum competency levels (4, 2, 2, 3, 1)
3) Choose the person filter type and save changes (Users with some of the competencies)

1) Selecting Competencies


The competencies are listed as a tag cloud in the 'Competency requirements' dialog. Competencies can be filtered by selecting the category and/or using the 'Free text filter' (we have used ".NET" in the screenshot below).

By clicking on the competency you add it as a requirement for the role.
By clicking on the trashcan the competency is removed.

2) Setting the Desired Competency Level


You can also define the minimum competency level required for the role and competency. As you filter for the perfect fit in Silverbucket, only people that have the same or greater level of this competency are listed.

If no level is set anyone with the competency (independently of competency level) are considered suitable for the role.

3) Choosing the Person Filter Type


Users with some of the competencies is a softer approach that allows the role to be filled when any of the listed competencies and levels match with the person.

Users with all of the competencies is a more strict version where every single competency and their level have to be matched.
