Summary: Learn how to turn or (or off) the scorecard wizard feature in PerformancePoint Services in SharePoint Server.

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, either the Select a Scorecard Template dialog box opens or a blank scorecard opens for editing.

To configure Dashboard Designer to use the Create a Scorecard wizard or to create a blank scorecard every time that you create a scorecard, follow these steps.

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

  2. Click Designer Options 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.
