Endorsing Other User’s Skills


In addition to adding skills to your profile to enhance search’s ability to find you, you can endorse other users for the skills they have, even if they do not have the skill listed!




Endorse a user for a listed skill

1. Navigate to the user’s profile overview

2. In the skills section, hover your mouse over the skill and a blue plus will appear directly to the right of the skill

3. Click the plus to endorse the user

4. The number to the far right of the skill should increase, or start with 1 if there were no current endorsements



Endorse a user for a skill that is not listed

1. Navigate to the user’s profile overview

2. In the skills section, click the Endorse button

3. Enter the skill in the tag field

4. Click the Endorse button to finalize the tag

5. The user will be notified of the endorsement in their Jive Inbox.  If they accept the tag it will be added to their profile with the endorsement set to 1.  If they reject it, it will not be added.


Endorsements add weight to search results.  If you have 5 people endorsing you for community management and I have just two, you will come up higher in the results when one searches for community management.
