Panels let you arrange what gets judged, by whom and when.
You can configure as many panels as necessary for a score set— you might typically have one panel per category. NB: It's highly recommended that you add yourself to any panel you create so that you can check your configuration progress.
Before configuring a panel, you will need to have created a score set to be judged, and a judging round. Then:
- Go to Judging > Panels
- Create a New panel
- Choose the judging mode, and score set you want to create a panel for
- In the Entries section, check the categories / chapters / tags for entries that are to be judged.
- In the Who section select who will be allowed to judge.
If you want to allow anybody with a specific role to judge, select Any users with a role and then check the role.
- In the When section, check the round configured earlier, for when judging will be permitted.
