Employees can edit and showcase themselves to the whole organization with the profile page, using the other components installed by the Profile template, which can provide insightful information on experience, skills, certificates, badges, language proficiency, and more.
This template adds roles and functionality from other templates we've already documented. See our other knowledge base articles:
The Profile template adds the Licenses and certifications model, which contains all the fields for you to document any training.
See our knowledge base article, Create a new model.
You can add or edit properties to fit your organization's exact requirements. For example, see our knowledge base article, Add a property to your model's schema.
The Certification organization records the organization body offering the qualification.
The Certification model stores the name or description of the certification awarded by an organization to an employee.
The Language model contains properties for various languages. For example, you can enter language codes and language-specific greetings.
You can enter languages manually using the Languages page, import data from an existing spreadsheet using the Imports page, or set up an Integration with Google Sheets.
The Person language model stores the employee's spoken languages and their proficiency.
The School model stores the educational institutions' names.
The Person education model stores the employee's time in education, school, degree, a field of study, and grades.
The Work experience model stores users' work history, which they can add using their profile page:
The Feedback model stores performance feedback from managers on their direct reports.
The workflows included in this template relate to the certifications feature. For example, the Expire the certificate and notify the owner workflow detects when a certificate has expired, retrieves the person it belongs to, and sends them an email to let them know it has expired.
See our knowledge base article, Create a workflow.
The Notify owner of forthcoming certificate expiry workflow sends an email to the certificate owner seven days before the expiry.
The Set expires flag to true if no expiry date workflow displays an "Expires" chip when the expiry date is known.
The Expires chip shows underneath the date range for your certification. If there is no expiry date specified, the chip doesn't appear.
This template adds the Profile page, which contains Detail blocks relating to the models we have covered earlier in this article:
