Manage judging dashboard

Found in the Manage workspace under Judging > Manage of your Award Force account, the judging dashboard has been designed to provide a quick summary of your program's judging progress in an easy-to-read format, all on one page. 

Judging fast start preview

From this destination you can view the number of entries included in a given judging stage, the number of judges participating, the round in which this judging is occurring, and the completion percentage across all selected judges.

Additionally, you can choose to configure a new judging stage via the Judging fast start button, add a new score set, populate new scoring criteria, configure new panels, set up new judging rounds, or create random or manual assignments. Let's take a closer look. 

Understanding the Manage view

In the Manage view, you will see unique tiles dedicated to each stage of your judging configuration that is made up of several key components:

Score set name

Score set name

First, you're presented with the name of your judging stage's score set. If you've configured this stage using the judging fast start, this will be the judging mode selected in the 'Mode' step. For Gallery and Voting modes, you will have assigned this name. For more information on score sets, see our guide: Configure score sets.


Number of entries

Number of entries Next, you'll see the total number of entries included in this judging stage. This number is inclusive of all judging panels, random assignments, and manual assignments associated with the score set. If you've configured this judging stage using the judging fast start, these are the entries selected in the 'Entries' step. 


Number of judges

Number of judges You are next shown the number of judges included in this judging stage. This value includes all judges paired with entries in the score set across all panels or random/manual assignments. These will be the users you've selected in the 'Judges' step of the judging fast start


Number of assignments

Number of assignments The total number of assignments shown provides insight on the number of pairings that exist between your selected judges and the total number of entries included in the score set. Depending on your configuration, the number of assignments may not be the number of entries times the number of judges. 


Judging round

Judging round The round associated with your judging stage is shown next. If you configured your judging stage using the judging fast start, this was created or selected in the 'Rounds' step. You can learn more about judging rounds here: Round configuration.


Judging progress

Judging progress Last but not least, the judging progress percentage reflects the total number of completed assignments within the judging stage. In the example shown, one judge has completed their assignment making up 20% of the total assignments for the score set.
