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 the Judge workspace from both the list view and within individual entries as shown below.
