Lock Skills in the User's Profile

To maintain a pattern on the type of skills your community can add to their profile, we've developed a feature that will allow you to add the skills from the Taxonomy section, and then your users will be able to select them from a dropdown menu on their profile.

How can I activate the skills controller?

This functionality is available for premium accounts.

To activate the skill controller, you have to go to the General Settings, then click on the Permissions, once there you will find the Lock Skills option that you can activate (green) or deactivate (red).
