How to create a Scorecard [Example]

In this example, we'll create a Scorecard for the Marketing Team to track key Metrics related to the work they're doing. We'll use some Google Analytics Metrics ("Sessions" and "Bounce Rate"), a HubSpot Mktg Metric ("New Leads), and a HubSpot CRM Metric (" Deals Created").

  2. Click the green + New Scorecard button.
  3. Enter a name for your Scorecard. We'll call ours Marketing Scorecard.
  4. Select the Background color for your Scorecard. We chose blue to match our company colors.
  5. Click on the first Metric drop-down list. Select your first  Metric for your scorecard. You can filter out metrics for a specific Data Source using the  Data Source drop-down. We'll select Google Analytics as the Data Source and New Sessions as the Metric
  6. In the Delivery Options section, choose the delivery method(s) for the Scorecard. Since team members with different preferences will be receiving this Scorecard, we'll select Email and Mobile to fit everyone's needs. 
  7. For my Marketing Scorecard, we'll choose Daily at 9 AM so that this data starts becoming part of our team's routine. The purpose of this Scorecard is to highlight the performance of the Marketing Team's most recent efforts, so we'll select Month to Date in the Show Data For field and select Previous Period for Comparison.
  8. I will select the members of my Marketing Team as Recipients of the Scorecard. 
  9. Since this is a specialized Scorecard for my Marketing Team, I will not check the Send to new users checkbox.
  10. Before saving the Scorecard, I'll click the gray Send a preview button to see exactly what my Marketing Team will be receiving on a weekly basis.
  11. After reviewing the Scorecard preview and verifying that this is the high-level Marketing summary I want my team to receive each week, I'll click Save to save the Scorecard in my Account.
