Using the Rise Scorecard collector to create a “derivative” metric

The Rise Scorecard collector was created to help scorecard managers to create derivative metrics from metrics (and score entries) they already have on any of the scorecards they manage.

The benefit of this is to enable you to re-use the score entry data you’ve already brought into your scorecards and so create a more sophisticated scorecard.

Examples of when you can use this Score Collector are:

  • You have 2 different scorecards for the same group of users, and you decide you’d like to create a 3rd scorecard that will have a metric that will be a function of metrics in the first 2 scorecards e.g. you’ve got scorecards for 2017 and 2018 sales for your sales reps, and you want to create a scorecard that scores on the total of 2017 and 2018 sales.
  • You want to create a derivative metric on your existing scorecard that calculates the sum or difference of score entries recorded at different time points for another metric on the same scorecard e.g. you’re tracking weekly sales of your sales reps and you want to calculate the % change in sales between two consecutive weeks

An example of a scorecard that I’ve created using this feature is Twitter Followers Club pictured below:

If you’d like to follow my steps, I’ve provided full details of how I built this scorecard in this help article:

How do I create a scorecard with a metric which auto-calculates the difference between the two most recent score entries of an existing metric?
