In order to record a decision, Account /Event Administrators should navigate to the Decisions Table by clicking on Decisions in the left hand menu. (Committee Members can also make decisions if permitted. Although the interface is slightly different, the process is the same as below).




This will access the Decisions Table.



Click on Columns to the right hand of the table to reveal the groups of data: Choose which fields you would like to view in table from the first three - submission data, submission responses, and review data.



The bottom group, decision responses, contains the fields where you will make your decisions (with the exception of decision last updated, which is generated automatically). Tick decision, as well as the columns in which you would like to enter data.



Record a decision

All the decision response columns will appear in the right hand side of the table, and will be denoted by borders.  To record a decision for a submission, click the dropdown fields and select the option that matches your decision(s). Changes are saved automatically


Choose the Final Category in the next column. 


The remaining default decision fields are as follows:


Decision notes:  Click on the pencil icon to add any notes. These will be visible to admin and committee only.

Paid: Check this box to keep a manual note of submitters' payment status.

Attention: Check this box for any submissions that might need flagging up.

Notes to submitter:  Enter any notes that you might want to include for the submitter. These can be added to emails as a merge field, when sending out notifications.

Program Code: This can be used to give custom numbers to the submissions and will overwrite the submission ID. See here for more information.



Make Bulk Decisions

To apply a decision to a number of submissions, click on 'Bulk Decide', 


enter the ID numbers of the submissions you wish to apply the decision to, then choose the relevant decision fr the options.
