Just wanted to call out, at the suggestion of superstar Sunil in support, about the style of skilling report that had been available under the Competency tab but has now disappeared along with the competency system. As much as there are other reports available through Insights, they are not as targeted and user friendly for the everyday PC user as the Competency Skilling report that captured the exams and other qualifications that were relevant to (competencies) designations and advanced specs. There is now the choice of non-specific reporting that returns 1,000s of results, capturing every incremental sub-unit of learning and skilling that needs a lot of filtering or the skilling reports attached to every skilling requirement that reflects the aforementioned.
As there are many levels at which partner employees engage with PC, I just want to strongly recommend restoring the previous reports somewhere easy to navigate to, possibly with the addition of including the designations/advanced specs that the exams, certs and assessments contribute to.
any hint regarding this feature in the future?
The solution above seems to report only competencies connected to the former subscription (gold membership in our case).
I think that a complete overview of employee skills (even the ones not related to a specific solution partnership) would be the best.
I have also noticed that the skills data between partner solution area, insights and the "skilling eligibility" export in https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/dashboard/insights/mpninsights/solutionspartner (you can have an export clicking on "Show more" and than unchecking all the filters) are not always consistent and updated so it creates further confusion!
I heard from my internal source and this is what was shared:
"Partners can see all exams taken, all certifications linked to their business, any training their linked individuals have completed or currently busy with (All under the Training Performance block)
The last screenshot shows the individuals and each individual’s certifications (the certification name gives you the solution area it falls under)
Under the different Solution Areas, where there are certifications associated with that Solution Area (I have circled where to press to get the information on the Right Screenshot, partners can see exactly what the certification is and who it belongs to, and it shows whether it is advanced or intermediate.
I don’t know if I am misunderstanding what the partner is struggling with, but all the information is there, it is just presented differently to what they’re maybe used to. But this layout is more targeted, showing specific information and not everything all at once.
In terms of information being up to date, unfortunately PC does sometimes take a little while to reflect the most recent and accurate information. If this goes on for more that 48Hrs, partners can log a ticket with the help desk and send their ticket number to their PDM to escalate the query.
I hope that this helps."
Thank you for the complete reply.
Your solution work great to have information regarding skills connected to specific solution area. Probably the latest answer of @ehartley is wider since the export includes also the other certifications.
This is not my area of expertise, so I am sharing information that is being shared with me.
Is there a more specific question I can try to get a solution for or did the above cover what was needed? 😃
@marcoantonelli I am trying to find someone internally that knows about this. No promises, but I hope to have some information to share.

Select ‘Trainings’ from the Data source column, you can then filter but be aware that the one certification for an individual will appear multiple times, corresponding to all the components that contribute to the certification – it also doesn’t tell you which designations/advanced specialisations/programs they contribute towards like the old report. It would be useful if they could add that in.

WOW, That was huge!
As you said it is probably overkilling but undoubtedly the most complete source of information so far.
Thank you so much.
@StineSaatvedt @Mary @Octalita I saw that you have posted about Skilling in the past, would any of you know anything about this or resources we could look into?
Thank you in advance!
@Mary @Octalita @StineSaatvedt pinging you guys again hoping you can help. Thank you!! 🙂
@v-jillarmour I'm not familiar with these reports. I've brought it to Octalita's attention and she will follow up with you.
I also noticed this week that the "Skill Report" is no longer available, although it is still available in the documentation:
Also, I can only hope that such a report will be made available again with the addition that the designations/advanced qualifications of the solution areas and specializations to which the exams, certifications and assessments contribute will be included.
Earlier today I was talking about this with a colleague, and he still had the competencies tab link in his browser favourites. It is just a case of the tab having been taken away, the report is still in place and runs: Competencies (microsoft.com).
I guess the PC team need to find a new place for this to sit so it's navigable (but hopefully with the upgrade of reporting on which designations and spec they contribute to ;))
Thanks for the link. Let's hope that the PC team here will schedule this menu item somewhere again in the future.
