    In TSCO is possible create a new custom metric. Please refer to official documenation of your version in order to find the step to do in the the Console.

    Before adding a new metric, it would be best to perform a Match and gap process to be sure that there isn't already a predefined metric within the product that matches the definition of the new metric to be imported.  The goal is to not create a new custom metric where there is already an existing metric in TSCO that would be suitable.
