Create Scorecards 2.0

This article is the fourth item in a series of Scorecard 2.0 configuration articles. Gainsight recommends you to refer the initial articles of the series and then start with this article.

This article explains all the options available to configure Scorecards. Once you configure Measures and Grading scheme, you can create and configure Scorecards. A Scorecard consists of Measures, or Measures Groups, or a combination of both. You can include any of the Measures or Measure Groups created on the Measures tab, in your Scorecards. By default, an overall score is present for every Scorecard. The overall score can be auto calculated and depends on the individual Score of all the Measures, which are included in the Scorecards.

Important notes:

  • You can create a Scorecard for an Account or a Relationship
  • A Company Scorecard can only include those Measures and Measure Groups which were created for an Account. Similarly, Relationship Scorecards can include only Relationship Measures and Measure Groups.
  • A Scorecard for an Account and Relationship can have the same name, since they are created for different entities.
  • You can create reports based on the Scorecard data.

To create a Scorecard:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Health Scoring > Scorecard 2.0. The Scorecard Configuration window is displayed.

Properties Section

In this section, perform the following tasks:

  1. Enter a name for the Scorecard, in the Scorecard name field.

  3. Select a scheme from the Scheme type drop-down menu. The available schemes are:

To learn more about Scorecard Schemes, refer the Configure Scorecard Schemes article.

  1. Select the Default Scorecard check box, to set this scorecard as the default Scorecard. The default Scorecard plays a crucial role while assigning Scorecards to Accounts or Relationships. For more information on Default Scorecard and Scorecard assignment process, refer the Working with multiple Scorecards article.
  2. Select the Enable overall rollup check box to calculate the overall score of the Account based on the weights assigned to each measure in the Configure weights window. 

Note: If you do not select this check box:

  • The contribution of Measures is not considered in calculation of the Overall Score. You must  set the Overall score     using the Set Score 2.0 action type in Rules Engine.
  • The percentage contribution displayed on the top right corner for each measure, (in the Summary view of Scorecard  2.0 section on the C360 page) is not displayed, since Measures do not contribute to the overall score.
  1. Select the Enable group scores check box to calculate the score for each Measure group based on the weights assigned to each measure in the Configure weights section. However, if you do not select this check box, scores for Measure Groups are not displayed.
  2. (Optional) Enter a description in the Scorecard description field.

  1. Click VALIDITY TYPE. The Validity Period window is displayed.
  2. Select the Validity Type and Validity Period for each Measure. Once the Validity period has passed, the Measure displays a stale score.  

For example, if you set the Validity Period for 1 week on 1 Dec 2018. Your score is valid for 1 week till 7 Dec 2018. However, if you modify the score on the 6th Dec 2018, the validity is extended for one more week, starting from 6th day. The new Validity Period would be 6 Dec 2018 - 12 Dec 2018. If you update the Score within the Validity Period (6-12 Dec), the Validity is extended by another week, starting on the date on which the Score was modified. This rule applies for other Validity Type also.

In this case, an Exception has been set such that, if Customer Sentiment measure’s score is greater than or equal to 79, Overall Score is also equal to 79, irrespective of Weightage configured.  To learn more about Exceptions, refer the Exceptions in Scorecards article.

Configure Criteria

The Criteria section allows you to define various conditions. If a Account or a Relationship can satisfy these conditions, then this scorecard is applied to the respective Account or Relationship. The default Scorecard is not  applicable to such Account or Relationship. You can add all the Account or Relationship fields as source for the criteria.

To configure a Criteria:

  1. Click + ADD CRITERIA.
  2. Form the required criteria by selecting the required fields and operators.
  3. (Optional) Click + ADD CRITERIA, to add more criteria.
  4. Click SAVE, to save the Scorecard.

A prompt box appears on the window. If you select the Yes option, the changes are applied immediately to the Account and Relationships. However, if you select No, the changes are applied when the Scorecard Resolver runs.

This Scorecard would now be applied to all the Accounts with 10,000 or more employees.

Scorecard Fact Object
