The status of a skill indicates whether the skill is visible in search results and whether it's bookable. The options are:
The skill can be found in search results and is bookable.
The skill can not be found in search results, is not bookable and is only visible to you
The skill can not be found in search results. However, it is bookable. The skill can only be viewed by navigating directly to its url.
This is a great option if you don't want your skill to be visible to everyone, but only to people chosen by you. You can share the url directly with these people, allowing only them to view it and make bookings.
