To make smart decisions, you need consistent scoring- and that's where your scorecard comes in. In this article, we will cover how to configure scorecards for new jobs.

Note: Configuring a job's scorecard during the new job creation process requires that your organization has Scorecard enabled as a step in the job setup flow.
To configure a new job's scorecard, navigate to the Add icon in the upper right-hand corner and select Create a Job from the dropdown menu.
Follow the on-screen instructions to create a new job and provide job details. When finished, click Create Job & Continue.
Depending on whether you are working from a sample template, blank template, or a custom job template, the scorecard configuration page may or may not have pre-populated categories and attributes.
Attributes are specific qualities that your hiring team is looking for in a successful candidate. Categories are used to organize these attributes into sections.
To add a new category to the scorecard, navigate to the bottom of the page and click + Add a Category. Provide a name for the category and click Create when finished.
Note: To remove any category, hover over the name of the category and click Remove Category. A dialog box will ask you to confirm this decision. Click Yes, Remove Category.
Add attributes to a category by clicking Edit in the category stripe.
There are multiple ways to add attributes to a scorecard category. A single attribute can be added by inputting the name of the attribute in the provided field. To add an additional attribute, click +Add Attribute.
Alternatively, users can can draw upon existing/default attributes by clicking Choose Existing and from the subsequent dialog box, choose 1 or more attributes from the list. When finished, click Add.
When you have finished adding/editing attributes to a category, click Save to confirm.
Repeat as necessary for other categories in the scorecard and continue with the job creation workflow when finished.
