Different positions require specific talents, Scorecards can be used to assess candidates based on personality traits and skills.

Please note that this article refers to the default Scorecards automatically available before you've activated the Interview kit feature

Adding the criteria

In the edit mode of the job ad or job template, you'll find the Interview scorecard section:

Click Add criterium to pick a new criteria from the drop-down list, or start typing to add a new one:

Under Settings → Recruitment → Skills and traits you can also view and delete all existing personality traits and skills.

Rate the candidate 

To fill in your Scorecard on a candidate, go to the candidate card and click Scorecards in the sidebar menu.

Press + Add score to assess the candidate on a scale from 1 to 5 on each personality trait and skill:

Once it's filled in, you will find your own (and your colleagues) feedback under the Scorecards side bar like so:

If you've changed your mind about some of the ratings, don't worry! You can always edit your score under the Scorecards tab:


Users with access to the job can see the candidate's score in the job process. The different colored bars correlate to the Hiring team's compiled scorecard reviews: 

If you can't see any scorecards available on the candidate profile under Scorecards, it's most likely due to:

1. The candidate has not been added to a job
2. The job that the candidate has been added to, does not have any scorecard added to it yet

In the Activity sidebar on the candidate's profile, you'll see once a scorecard has been filled out and by whom. Go to Scorecards as described above, to view your colleagues scores.
