Assignments and its common uses


What are assignments?

When you're ready to start the judging phase of your program you'll need to link judges up with entries to judge. These judge-entry pairs are called assignments. You can see a complete list of all assignments at Settings > Judging > Assignments.

Whenever judges are assigned to entries, either by creating panels or manually, an assignment is created.

Example: if we have 3 judges, each judging 5 entries then we will have 15 assignments. Screenshot_2018-10-31_at_13.29.18.png

How to create assignments


The most common way to create assignments is to create panels. A panel determines who judges what and when. With panels you can link judges to one or more categories. Panels let you pair judges with entries in bulk. You can read more about panels in Create a judging panel. When you create a panel the judging assignments will automatically appear at Settings > Judging > Assignments. 

Important: if using panels, individual assignments cannot be deleted. Instead you'll need to remove the judge from the panel to delete the assignment. However with manual or random assignments you can individually delete them.

Manual assignments

Another way to create assignments is by manual assignments. Manual assignments will allow you to pair judges with entries one at a time. Please see Manual assignments to learn more.

Random assignments

Random assignments allow you to simply and efficiently assign a certain number of entries per judge or judges per entry without creating these assignments manually. Please see Random assignments to learn more.

How to view assignments

The assignments view provides a convenient way to search for specific information like all the entries assigned to one specific judge or which entries still require judging and which are complete.
