Tag entries



In Award Force, you can create and apply tags to entries. Tagging allows you to add additional information to assist managing entries, particularly through judging panel configuration. Tagging is often used in programs that have multiple stages of judging (e.g. qualifying, shortlisting, finalist and winner selection).

Important: Tags may contain sensitive information and are not shown to judges or entrants.

How do I tag an entry?

Tagging an entry can be done in two ways:


  1. From Entries > Manage entries, click an entry.
  2. Under Tags, in the tag input field simply type anything you want (single or multiple words).
  3. Previously used tags appear in a list as you type.
  4. Click Save to create/apply the tag.

In bulk:

  1. From EntriesManage entries, or on Judging > Leaderboard, select the checkbox to the left of each entry you want to tag
  2. Within the Actions dropdown box, click Tag
  3. In the tag input field that appears, type in anything you want (single or multiple words)
  4. Previously used tags appear in a list as you type
  5. Click Add to create/apply the tag to all entries you selected

How to remove tags

There are a few different ways to remove tags from entries.

1. Remove from an individual application:

  1. Go to Entries > Manage entries
  2. Select the title of the entry you want to remove the tag from
  3. Click the 'X' icon next to the tag you want to remove
  4. Click Save

2. Remove from the entry preview:

  1. Click the 3 dots next to the entry to select Preview
  2. Click on the 'X' icon next to the tag you want to remove

3. Remove from all applications by deleting the tag:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Tags
  2. Select the checkbox next to the tag you want to remove
  3. Click Delete.

Panel configuration using tags

When setting up a judging panel, if you have used tags on entries then a list of all available tags will be presented for you to choose from. If you select one or more of the tags listed, only submitted entries with those tags applied will show to judges on this panel.
