How Do I Jury the Applicants to My Event?

Video instructions located here and at the end of this article.

Follow the process below to "jury" the applicants to your event.

If you have multiple people jurying the applicants, you are able to use the Invite Others to Jury feature.
From your Event Organizer dashboard, click on the title of the event.

In the left navigation bar, click Applications then the Jury / Review button.

Click the Configure button to select the information you'd like to see as you jury your applicants. Click Save.

If you'd prefer to not see the names of the applicants you are jurying, uncheck the box next to "Show the applicant’s name and basic information".

Click the Jury All button.

Type the names of your tags into the Tags area and press Enter to set up your tags. You may also leave comments.

Tags are an important part of our jurying process and they are very adaptable to a variety of jurying systems. You'll want to think through the way you'll want to tag your vendors.
Tag Example 1
You may want to set up three tags "Yes", "Maybe", and "No". As you move through the applicants, you can use these tags for reference when you go back to approve the applications. If you have multiple people who are part of the jury process, you could use initials to designate who is in favor of approval (see example below).

Tag Example 2
You are able to use your tags more than once per applicant, so you could use a points system. For example, each person on the jury team can give the applicant up to 5 points. The applicants that receive the most points are approved. In the example below, the applicant would have scored a 13 from the jury team.

You are now able to approve your applicants. There are several options for quick approval.
Approve/Deny individual applications using the Approve/Deny links in the "Actions" column.

Use the checkboxes in the Status column to select the applicants you would like to Approve/Deny. Then, use the dropdown box above that section to approve/deny the companies that you have selected.

Tip: You can use the filtering options to sort your applicants, then, use the methods listed above for approval/denial.
Filter Example
You could filter according to a custom question to approve all the applicants in a certain category at the same time. For example, you could use a question like "What is your primary product?" to select all the "Pottery" vendors. Then, use your tags to determine if you'd like to accept the applicant (for example, three "Yes" ratings gets approval). Or, you could combine the "primary product" filter with a "Tags" filter for all your Yes votes to drill down even deeper into your jury results.
