Configure score sets

At their most basic level, a score set controls the judging mode that will be employed and what your judges will see when evaluating an entry. Score sets allow you to have multiple discrete stages of judging, even running at the same time. You must add at least one score set in order to configure judging.

To understand score sets, check out our dedicated guide: How do score sets work?

While every mode has different settings within the score set, some settings are common across all judging modes. To get started, open the Manage workspace and navigate to Judging > Settings > Score sets and click New score set.

'Details' tab

Confidentiality agreement: this agreement is shown to judges upon first login for the score set. It is not mandatory to configure a confidentiality agreement. Should you require judges to sign one, you can choose the default template for a confidentiality agreement from the drop-down box or create your own agreements in the Manage workspace via Settings > Content > Content blocks. You can learn more about content blocks in our dedicated guide, Content configuration and management.

Role registration form: additional registration forms can be configured to allow public or registered users to complete specified user information to register for another role. Configure a form first and select it from the drop-down.

'Display' tab

Field visibility: fields can be made visible or be hidden from judges based on your program's needs. For more information see: Show/hide fields for judging.

Order entries: control the order in which entries are presented to your judges. This order can be dictated by entry ID (the order in which entries were created), by category, by entry name, or randomised. 

List length default: choose the number of entries your judges see per page in their judging list view. This setting makes it easier for judges who have a lot of assigned entries to view everything at once. Options include 10, 25, 50, and 100 entries per page. 

Commenting: commenting module can be switched on for various modes and allows judges to leave notes during the evaluation process. Comments can be shared between judges or with entrants depending on your configuration. For more details, see: Configure comments for judges.

Attachments: the display of attachments is on by default. Display can be switched off if not required.

Share scores: you must have at least one score set in place to enable sharing scores. Share scores is the option to display scores to some or all judges. To learn more, see: Display (share) scores and comments between judges.

Searchable fields: fields can be added to the search filter for any judging mode. By default, judges can only search by certain filters such as chapter, category, and status. For more information on searchable fields check out our guide, How to search and filter.

Slideshow: a slideshow is best used for awards which have plenty of image and video attachments. The slideshow opens in a new tab and shows full size images and videos from each entry. It can also be viewed in fullscreen mode.
