Lock/Unlock judge scores

In configuring a VIP judging score set for your program, you've likely seen the option to Lock scores 5 minutes after completion.

This option allows you to prevent your judges from editing the scores they've applied to an entry after 5 minutes. Once this time period has passed, your judges will be able to see the scores that they've assigned, but will not be able to alter them.

Should you need to unlock a score for any reason, you can do so by following the steps below.

  1. In the Manage workspace, go to Judging > Settings > Assignments
  2. Locate the score that needs to be unlocked
  3. Click the 3 dots to the left of your Judge's name
  4. Select Unlock scoring
    Unlock scoring option in ellipsis menu
Note:  unlocking of scores cannot be done in bulk and must be done one entry at a time.
