Ordinally Rank Award Applications

The "Ordinally Rank Award Applications" task allows reviewers to rank submissions based on a "Top 10" format (administrators can change the number to suit whatever ranking scheme they prefer).


Basic Information Tab

The Basic Information tab provides a quick overview of the elementary descriptions (Title and Description) associated with the task, and can be formatted using the Visual Editor. 

Name: The name of the task - how it will appear in the Competition Design page, and referred to in every other instance within your site. 

Set a Description: This description is shown to applicants who fill out this form. Specifying a description is optional. When checked, the Visual Editor is displayed, which allows the content to be formatted accordingly.


Round & Group Tab 

The Round and Group tab allows the administrator to select which stage the task will be in, as well as the group the task should be applicable to. 

Stage: The specific stage the task should be affiliated with can be selected from this drop down menu. 

Group: The Group this task should be assigned to can be selected from this drop down menu. 

Awards:  Here you can select which Award this task will be available to.


Behavior Tab 

The Behavior tab presents critical options that affect the visibility of the task, as well as its importance.
