Edit and Import Job Scorecards

Interview GPS integrates with the Values, Competency, and Skills scorecard categories in Greenhouse Recruiting. If these categories do not exist yet, Interview GPS will create them the first time it adds any attributes for the relevant category.

You can retain any additional categories (such as Experience) that you might want to compare between candidates. Interview GPS will ignore these additional categories. 

To edit the scorecard for a job, navigate to the Job Dashboard, then click Job Setup Scorecard

From the Scorecard page, click View Role on Interview GPS to open the job in Interview GPS. 


Click Edit Role


Select any Competencies or Skills that are necessary for the role, and then click Update Role


If you have not already done so, configure the Core Values for your organization by clicking the Core Values button in the left-side navigation bar.


Toggle any Core Values for your organization. 


Once you have configured your organization’s values and the job’s competencies and skills, return to Greenhouse Recruiting and navigate to the Job Dashboard > Job Setup > Scorecard. Click Import from Interview GPS.


The Scorecard page will refresh and you will see the Values, Competencies, and Skills you selected in Interview GPS. The other categories and their attributes will be unchanged.

To start, click Regenerate Template to have Interview GPS automatically fill the interviews with questions.

Alternatively, or in addition to pre-populating the interview, you can edit the questions in each interview manually.

You can verify the questions were added to end of the Interview Prep materials by scrolling down the Edit Interview Kit page:


Finally, click Save to save the updates to the Interview Kit and return to the Interview Plan page.


Repeat this process for each Interview Kit with an UPDATE status.
