Custom measure units dialog

  • Create and name new units of measure in any way you like, for instance, $/m2;
  • Import and export the list of measure units from other projects of BSC Designer.

Create new measure units

1. Specify the name for new measure units. For instance: m2 stands for "square meters".

2. Select grouping type. Select groping type that will be default for items with this measure unit.

3. Custom text values. This option allows using some text values instead of integer values.

For instance: if your goal is to rate the area of some real estate you can use integers like 30 m2, 35 m2, 100 m2, but for your particular task it might be more important to classify all real estates into 3 groups like:

  • < 30 m2 ... minimal score
  • 30 m2 ... 50 m2 ... normal score
  • >50 m2 ... excellent score
Use "+" button under "Custom text values" section to add these custom measure units:

 4. Finalize editing. Click "OK" and use new measure units in your scorecard project:

Once a measure unit has been created, it will be accessible in the "Measure" drop-down list for all indicators.
