As a Devpost Hackathon manager, you’ll want to keep your registrants engaged and focused. Using the “To-do” feature, you can direct participants to a community chat (if your hackathon has one) and up to three additional actionable tasks that’ll set them up for success right from the start of the hackathon.
To add to-dos for your registrants click To-dos under Edit Hackathon and add Actions.
Using the dropdown menu you have six options: (Download, Signup, Register, Read, Review, Attend) for Actions. Upon adding the Action, add a Label to describe the task you’d like for registrants to take, i.e API docs, SDK. Then, add the URL of where registrants can complete the task.
(Action) Download (Label) the SDK (URL) http://yourcompany.com/sdk
(Action) Review (Label) the API docs (URL) http://yourcompany.com/docs
Click Save and you’ve now created a checklist of to-dos!
Bonus tip: Organize the Actions by priority.
To remove actions, simply click on the red X next to the Action. We encourage you not to remove Actions after launch as it may create confusion. However, if you need to update an Action, simply repeat the same steps above.
How To-dos are displayed to registrants
If your hackathon is using a chat app like Slack or Discord (or has a FB group) you can add the sign up link to it here. This address will be displayed to registered participants and automatically appear as a to-do item on the list.
