We are looking to use the Skills and talents person attribute to track volunteer interests and skills.Is there an easy way to input this or a way members could input their own through the member portal?
Yes. Check out the "My Attributes" module or the alternate versions that are free from KFS. Add the module to a test page with your member portal template and look through the options in settings. I use this to allow people to modify their email subscriptions and it works great.
Thanks, I got it to show up but when I go to enter the data under my test user all the fields disappear. I have adjusted permissions on that attribute to allow any user to view as well as edit, it still disappears. Any thoughts?
There are permissions in various places - the page, the module, the attributes group, the attributes themselves. I'm using KFS My Attributes and users have view rights on the page and module and edit rights on the attributes and it's working. I can't remember if the Arena My Attributes module needed anything different. Support should be able to help troubleshoot.
