How do I create a new metric template?

With PowerSteering metrics, you can automate and standardize the collection of a work's quantitative data. Metric templates provide a framework for the metric data. You create each template once, then attach it to appropriate work. A metric can be added to work via an auto association with a work type, by using a template that has the metric attached, or manually. This article describes how to create a new metric template.

Note: Metric is a replaceable term in PowerSteering. Your organization may use a different label to represent metrics on your site.
