Overview of Importing Competencies, Assigning them and Adding Achievement Data

Aside from manually creating competencies, assigning the competencies to your workers' records and completing all the relevant achievement details, you can use an importer to save more time in managing these tasks.

You can use the importer to simultaneously import all of these details in one go, or you can use the same importer at multiple stages to update the relevant details. 

Only users with either the "AccountAdmin" or "Training Management" role can import competencies into enableHR. Depending on which role you have, there are different ways to access the import page for competencies:
