Peer-to-Peer Sharing & Measure Library

 The new and improved Measure Library allows member organizations to automatically pull peer data into your account for live benchmarking! The library can be organized into custom groups by request and helps eliminate double data entry by integrating benchmark data into your regular performance reporting.

  • Shared Series: Automatically pull peer data into your account for calculations, charts, and one-off benchmarks.
  • Custom Groups: Create and join groups to share and leverage data with select peers.
  • Integrate ClearPoint with Benchmarking Platform: Eliminate double data entry and utilize benchmark data in your regular performance reporting.
  • Timestamps: Find recently updated measures by sorting on ‘Last Updated’ in the Measure Library.

Check out our comprehensive Peer-to-Peer Sharing guide for full instructions on getting started with and effectively using the updated Measure Library!

Template Scripting

Template Scripting allows you to make repeatable, typically time-consuming changes across your account quickly!

Create reusable templates to save time on common tasks such as:

  • Add identical objectives to department scorecards
  • Edit charts for multiple measures
  • Edit summary reports across multiple scorecards
  • Bulk update initiatives based on same criteria
  • Edit all user settings at once
  • Add new measures or jurisdictions to benchmarking account
  • Plus many more!

Let us know if there is a task you repeat often and we’ll see if it can be scripted! Check out our support article for how to get this set up here and then reach out to our support team at support@clearpointstrategy.com for assistance.
