All judging modes require a score set. 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, see Score sets: How they work
While every mode has different settings within the score set, some settings are common across all:
Confidentiality agreement: shown to judges upon first login only. If you require judges to sign one, you can choose the default template Confidentiality agreement from the drop-down box. You can also create your own additional agreements via Content > Content blocks.
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.
Commenting: commenting module can be switched on for various modes.
Attachments: display of attachments is on by default. This 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. Read more
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.
Slideshow: this 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.
