Manage your hackathon with these helpful features:
Direct invitation to a hackathon
Invite coworkers to a specific hackathon by sharing a link from the Invite coworkers dropdown found on the hackathon page. Once the invitation link has been copied and shared, users will be prompted to sign in or sign up via SSO or password. Upon logging in, users will be taken to the associated hackathon page to register and participate!
Need to send important updates to your hackathon participants? As an Organizer, you can send a mass email immediately or schedule one for the future using the Announcements feature.
To begin, click on the megaphone icon — this will take you to the Hackathon announcements page. Click the Compose announcements button to draft, schedule, preview, and send announcements to one of the following Recipients:
- Registrants of this hackathon
- Submitters to this hackathon
- Winners of this hackathon
Published announcements will be visible to everyone on the hackathon’s homepage and sent via email to the email address associated with their Devpost for Teams account.
Note: All scheduled announcements are in the hackathon’s current timezone.
Hackathon creators can download two separate CSVs: Projects and Hackathon Registrants.
The Projects export shows the details associated with a given project while the Hackathon Registrants export provides information associated with the hackathon’s registrants (e.g. email address, role, and submission status).
To download metrics, click the Metrics icon on the hackathon page and you’ll be redirected to Hackathon Metrics. Click Download projects or Download status by the user; you’ll receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that the file is ready to be downloaded.
Note: Data is updated hourly from the first visit to the hackathon's metric page (e.g. if the first visit is at 10:15AM, data will be updated at 11:15AM).
Once the hackathon is over, the next step is Selecting Winners. Winners can be selected by clicking Select winners > clicking the winning project associated with the award. You can Save your choices or Announce winners once you’ve made your final selections.
