Scorecards

Scorecards can simplify hiring decisions by giving your team a list of criteria to rate candidates with. Find out how to use scorecards with your team.

A Scorecard is a list of criteria you define and associate with a specific position. Your Hiring Teams can use the Scorecard to evaluate candidates with a simple thumbs-up, thumbs-down system, plus notes on each scorecard item.

Customizable Scorecards are available to customers on Growth, Business, and Pro plans. Admin permission is required to create and edit Scorecards.

How to use Scorecards

Hiring Team members

Hiring Team members can access the scorecard from the Scorecard tab of a candidate’s profile. They can add their feedback using simple thumbs-up, thumbs-down, and neutral ratings, and written comments.

Each rating has a numeric value:
👍👍 Very Good = 10
👍 Good = 7.5
⭘ Neutral = 5
👎 Poor = 2.5
👎👎 Very Poor = 0

To complete a scorecard:

  1. Open the candidate’s profile.
  2. Click Scorecard near the top-right corner of the window.
  3. Enter any general thoughts or comments.
  4. Select an Overall Rating for the candidate.
  5. Select a rating for each additional Scorecard item and add written feedback, if applicable.
  6. Click Save Scorecard.

The average of the hiring team’s Overall Ratings is the Candidate Score. It’s shown on or near the candidate’s profile picture and in the candidate list. In Candidate Compare, the Candidate Score is shown as the Average Score, along with the average of each scorecard item.

Hiring Managers

Hiring Managers for a position (or team members with the appropriate custom permissions) can access a breakdown of all the hiring team’s feedback and scorecard information, in a single view, on each candidate’s profile.

  1. Open the candidate’s profile.
  2. Click the More dropdown near the top-left corner of the window.
  3. Click Team Scorecards.

How to request Scorecard feedback

Scorecards are always available on each candidate’s profile, so your hiring team can add feedback at any time. To be sure feedback is added, you can request scorecards automatically with Stage Actions, or as needed from the Candidate’s profile

Stage Actions

You can request scorecard feedback from your hiring team automatically, with the Team Feedback stage action.
When a candidate reaches the stage where the action has been set, a notification will be sent to everyone on the Hiring Team.

Learn more about setting up Stage Actions for automation.

Scorecard reminders

You can send reminders from the Hiring Manager’s Team Scorecards view. Just click Request Scorecards and reminders will be sent to hiring team members who haven’t added feedback yet.
