When you use PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer to create scorecards, you typically start by clicking the Create tab in the ribbon. Then, in the Dashboard Items group, you click Scorecard. Depending on how Dashboard Designer is configured, one of the following actions occurs:

  • The Select a Scorecard Template dialog box opens. This is the first page of the scorecard wizard.

  • A blank scorecard opens for editing.

You can easily configure Dashboard Designer either to use the Create a Scorecard wizard or to create a blank scorecard every time that you create a scorecard. That is, you can turn on or off the Create a Scorecard wizard in Dashboard Designer.

To turn on (or off) the Create a Scorecard wizard
  1. In Dashboard Designer, click the Microsoft Office button to open the Microsoft Office Backstage view.

  2. Click the Designer Options button to open the Options dialog box.

  3. On the Personalize tab, select (or clear) the Use wizards to create scorecards check box.

    An alternate method that you can use is to clear the Use wizard to create scorecards check box on the Select a Scorecard Template page of the wizard. Then, the next time that you click Scorecard on the Create tab in the ribbon, a blank scorecard will open for editing.
  4. Click OK to close the Options dialog box.
