Adding a lead judge

Note: the lead judge role is now provided as a default role in new Award Force accounts. This article can be used to add the role to legacy accounts.

A common request amongst programs that utilise Award Force is a manager-type role that helps to monitor the judging process of entries without having access to other areas of the platform, like settings. A lead judge, as it is configured here, will be able to see the total combined score from all judges via Entries > Judge entries from both the list view and within individual entries as shown below.
