 Balanced Scorecard Properties


Introduction - Functions Overview - Purchase Program

Balanced Scorecard Project Properties

To access Balanced Scorecard Project Properties, use the Properties command in the File menu.

The Main tab contains information about the balanced scorecard:

  • Scorecard author;
  • Scorecard name;
  • Scorecard description.

The Measure Units tab contains information about the units of measure used in the scorecard:

  • Measure units can be added or deleted;
  • Measure units can be imported from another .bsc project.

Customizing reports

There are two ways to customize reports:

  • Using custom values, if it is needed to insert text in the report;
  • Using custom files, if it is necessary to add some files to the report.

The custom values tab allows specifying custom values which will be used in the HTML report. To create a new custom value, follow these steps:

  1. Modify the template file to your needs. Typically you need to modify the "Common.html" file located in the \Templates folder.
  2. In the template file, use something of the format %custom_value%
  3. Go to the "Custom values" tab and click the Add button.
  4. In the Template field, input the name of the "custom_value" (without quotation marks).
  5. In the Value field, input the value for the custom template.
  6. Click the Apply button.

Check the online manual on customizing reports.

Custom files use the same idea as Custom values (see above), but custom files are designed specifically for files, for instance, a customer logo.

  • When an HTML report is generated, the custom file will be copied to the report folder.

Check the online manual on customizing reports.

SQL tab

  • The SQL tab contains settings that are used when BSC Designer access the external data with SQL indicators.
