New submission notification emails are sent to all hackathon managers and the hackathon creator once a day - until the final couple of days of the submission period during which they are sent on an hourly basis, if at least one new submission was created in the last hour.
To review the submission click on the link in the email, or go to the Submissions tab in the Manage Area of the hackathon.
Below is an image of what your Submissions tab will look like after your hackathon has received a few submissions.
You can mark submissions as “Gallery” or “Hidden” as they come in. By default every submission is marked “Pending” (in other words, it is waiting to be reviewed).
If you mark a submission as “Gallery” that means when you turn on the gallery (see the TURN ON GALLERY button) the submission will be visible to the public. If you mark a submission as “Hidden” it will be hidden from the public.
Submissions will not be visible to the public (even those marked “Gallery”) until you turn on the gallery by clicking the TURN ON GALLERY button.
Please note: we highly recommend that you do not turn the gallery off after it has been turned on. If you turn the gallery off and then on, all the submitters of entries marked “Gallery” will receive a new email stating that their submission has been published.
You can also mark each submission as “Gallery” or “Hidden” using the admin module on an individual submission page.
Let’s take a closer look at the admin module.
Once a submission has been made visible to the public, the submitter will receive an email notifying them that their submission has been published.
If you mark a submission as “Hidden” the submitter does not receive any notification.
Submitters can edit their submissions any time up until the end of the submission period. If a submitter edits a submission that is already visible in the gallery they will see the following pop-up:
If a publicly visible submission is edited, it will go back into “Pending” mode until it is reviewed by a hackathon manager. When this happens, the hackathon creator and all the hackathon managers will be updated via email.
