Every aspect of recruiting should be tailored to the person you hope to hire- sourcing, job ads, interview structure, and evaluation criteria all stem from your vision of your ideal candidate. To make smart decisions, you need consistent scoring — and that's where your scorecard comes in. In this article, we will cover how to edit scorecards for existing jobs.

Note: Edits made to scorecards will not affect scorecards currently in progress. Scorecards in progress will still show categories and attributes as they were prior to any edits.
