Click the links above for a detailed description of each method as well as when to use them and the effects they have on dashboards. The default method that is configured when you create a new Skills Base instance is the "Relevant Skills" calculation method.

Don't worry too much if you can't decide on calculation method as it can easily be changed at any time.


A balance between both methods

You can enjoy elements of both methods by selecting the "Relevant Skills" calculation method and disabling the zero rating in your Rating Scheme.
