Edit and import job scorecards to Greenhouse Recruiting

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.

Edit and import interview plans

To edit the Interview Plan for a job, navigate to the Job Dashboard, then click Job Setup > Interview Plan.

From the Interview Plan page, click Open in Interview GPS at the bottom of the page to open the job in Interview GPS.

On the Edit Interview Kit page for the interview, click Import Guide. This will automatically do the following:

  1. Toggle the focus attributes for the Values/Competencies/Skills
  2. Add the questions/instructions/rubrics to the Interview Prep
