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 'Scorecards' under the 'Settings' section:

Click 'New Scorecard'.

Fill in the name of your Scorecard, for example 'Customer Service' which could then be used for all customer service job vacancies that your organisation has.

Fill in the Section Name, for example 'Cultural Fit' and then enter the Options and Questions that you want for that section.

Add additional sections as you require:

Weighted Values
These allow you to let some answers have a larger 'weighting' than other answers. Let's say that Previous Experience is double as important as the other options, then that should have a weighted value of 2.0.

This will show up in the scorecards menu for a job, where you can see the final scores with and without weighted values. This is shown when you over over the 'overall score', as shown here:

Note that the Overall score is a percentage, whilst the overall points is a large number in the example above as many people have filled out this scorecard with an overall rating of 211 points, for the 310 points available.

Assign the Scorecard to a Stage

Once you have created your Scorecard you can add it to an interview stage.

Browse to the navigation on the left hand side of your Pinpoint Admin Screen and select 'Manage Jobs' under the 'Jobs' section:

Locate the job you wish to add the Scorecard to and click on the job title.

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:

Edit a Scorecard

Browse to the navigation on the left hand side of your Pinpoint Admin Screen and select 'Scorecards' under the 'Settings' section:

Next to the Scorecard that you wish to edit click 'Edit' and then make any changes that you wish. Once finished, click Save at the bottom of the window.

If you wish to remove a Scorecard then click Delete:

Note that this will not remove any Scorecard ratings already recorded against a candidate.
