You can always export your hackathon’s projects data to see how far they’ve come in the submission process, to judge projects, to identify projects that don’t meet requirements, or to complete any other project-related task.
To export project data, navigate to the manage area of your hackathon and click on the Metrics tab. Then select Projects data and click the blue Generate report button.
Once the report generates, you’ll be able to click the Download report link under the Generate report button. Clicking Download report will download a .csv file of your projects data in your browser.
If you’ve added custom submission form questions, you’ll find responses here in the Projects data export.
Using your .csv export file, you can sort and filter through all of the projects that are in different states, steps completed, and much more.
Note: If you do not download the report to include “Personally identifiable information” PII will not be included in the file. Please also keep in mind that data is self-reported, therefore, someone’s first name could be a nickname versus their legal name.
Using projects data for in-person judging
Every hackathon runs judging differently, but for most in-person hackathons, the most popular method is the “science-fair-style expo”; similar to how school science fair projects are showcased, this method allows judges to go around to each table to review hackathon projects one by one.
Most in-person events that run judging this way need a way to show hackers, judges, and sponsors where each project is located. Devpost has a built-in feature to auto-assign table numbers and share them with your hackers, judges, and sponsors. Read more about assigning table numbers through Devpost.
Using projects data for online judging
If you’re doing online judging, you do not need to download the projects data report as you’ll find all of the projects will be viewable via the judging dashboard when the judging period has opened. Read more about online judging here.
