  • You have the option to re-order skills in any order you want from desktop..
  • You can also hide all of your endorsements by opting out. Hiding individual endorsements can alter the display order of your skills. If you hide all of a skill's endorsements, it may move to the skill to the bottom of the list.
  • If you don't want a specific person to endorse you, you can remove the connection between the two of you. They won't be notified if you break the connection.
