Converting a Qualification into a Course

Converting a qualification into a course allows it to show in the matrix and courses reports


When you add a qualification for an employee that is not linked to an existing course record in Flow360 it will not show on the matrix report or other courses reports. You can create a new course from a qualification record in order to link employee qualifications to the new course and have the details show in the matrix.

The unlinked qualification record

Qualification records that are not linked to a recognised course record will show the text 'name (not linked)' by the qualification name field.
The button to the right of the name field (1) show a grey pointer, not a goto button, which woul dbe the case if the qualification was linked to a recognised course record.

Click the link to button to link this qualification now, or create the course from the qualification if no apropriate courses are found to link to.
