Staff skill areas

Show expandable text

To help determine which staff member is most qualified for a particular work item, Practice CS allows you to track the skill areas for each staff member and a skill rating for each skill. The collection of skill areas and skill ratings assigned to a staff member is called a skill set.

Use the Staff Skill Areas screen to enter the expertise areas you want to track for staff members.

From the Setup menu, choose Staff Skill Areas.


  • This screen is available only if you are licensed for the Staff Management module and have security privileges to access this screen.
  • If your firm is also licensed for the Project Management module, you can use staff skill set filters to help select staff to work on firm projects.
