A criterion is a principle by which board users evaluate issue priority.

There are 'All users' criteria available to everyone added to the board, and there 'Team' criteria available only to certain people added to a specific team.


To Create a Criterion

1. Inside a board, go to Criteria and Total Score Settings.

2. Decide if you're going to create a criterion for All users or for a Team, and click Add Criterion.

3. Type the criterion Name.

4. Set if it's a Value or an Effort.

This is important for the Matrix quadrants and for the formulas 'Value Product divided by Effort' and 'Value Sum divided by Effort'.

You can use any positive or negative whole or fractional number.

Don't use negative numbers for Effort criteria if you're using the 'Value Product divided by Effort' or 'Value Sum divided by Effort' formula.

6. Set the Scores.

You can set Range, Sequence, Percent, or Positive scale, or choose from Score Presents.

To Move a Criterion

1. Hover the mouse over the criterion you want to move.

2. Click the arrow up or down to rearrange the criteria inside the team or to move it to another one.
