What are Scorecards?
An interview scorecard is a set of factors that you would like to assess the candidate on, and enables you to create a structured, standardised way of assessing a candidate.
A scorecard is assigned to an interview stage so you might want to have one for each interview type you have.

Create a Scorecard
If you haven't already, please make sure you're logged in to your Pinpoint account - you can do this by browsing to https://pinpointhq.com/login and entering your work email address and your Pinpoint password (you will have set this when you signed up for Pinpoint or when you accepted an invitation from a colleague).
First, browse to the navigation on the left hand side of your Pinpoint Admin Screen and select 'Templates' under the 'Settings' section, the below page will appear:
Click '+ Create New'.
Fill in the name of your Scorecard, for example 'HR Interview'.
Fill in the Section Name, for example 'Core values fit' and then enter the Options (1-5 rating scale) and Questions (where you can answer in an open text box):
You can also:
1. Duplicate the scorecard
2. Add additional sections
3. Preview the scorecard
These allow you to let some answers have a larger 'weighting' than other answers. We can see below the 'Clarity when speaking' example with 3 dots next to it meaning it has a weighted value of 3 (aka 3 times as important than being Articulate).
This will show up in the scorecards menu for a job, where you can see the final score. This is shown when you hover over the 'overall score', as shown here:

Next, click 'Edit', then 'Edit Stages'. Then click on the pencil icon for the hiring workflow stage you'd like to add the scorecard to and add in the scorecard from the options available:
