Random assignments


You may need to assign a certain amount of judges to each entry or assign each judge a certain number of entries. You can do this with Random assignments.  

Note: Random assignments do not require panels.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Judging > Assignments
  2. Click New random assignment
  3. Select the relevant:
    • Score set from the Score set drop-down option
    • Round from the Round drop-down option. If you haven't created your judging round, go to Settings > Rounds to do so
  4. In the Randomly assign box:
    • Choose a number of assignments
    • Select whether you are assigning entries per judge or judges per entry
    • Elect whether your assignments are minus existing assignments or in addition to any existing assignments
  5. Search for the judge(s) and entry(ies) you want to pair
    • You can search for a judge by typing the name and/or by role using the Advanced search filter
    • You can search for an entry by Name, ID, Status (i.e. In progress or Submitted), and Category
  6. Click Create assignments

Delete random assignments

To delete an assignment:

  1. Go to Judging > Assignments
  2. Open the Advanced search and type the Judge name
  3. Check the box next to the assignment and select Delete

Note: this will not delete the entry, only the judging assignment(s).

If a judge has started or completed a judging assignment, the assignment can no longer be deleted completely. Instead, it will be marked as "Stray".

The entry will no longer appear in the judge list of entries.

See: What are Stray scores

The deleted (Stray) assignments will not be included in any reporting. This protects historical data as there was judging activity that took place within these assignments, in case you ever need to recover those scores in the future.

To recover scores, create another manual assignment with the same entry and judge.
