by | Mar 16, 2022 | Feature focus

Your success is our success. We say this a lot—because it’s true. And our newest feature drives this fact home.

Introducing: Guides and tours in the Award Force platform. It’s a new tab available in the left-hand navigation that provides you with incredibly helpful resources, all in one handy spot.

From this area, you can configure your account with easy-to-follow instructions and guides. Or, you can read about our latest new features. And, you can take a variety of tours that orientate you around a feature or part of the platform.

Guides for configuration

Under the guides section, you can read through a variety of helpful articles, including:

  • Account set-up and configuration
  • User registration
  • Judging configuration
  • The entry form builder
  • Gallery set-up
  • And much more!

New features

We make it easy for program managers to see the latest new features in the platform in this new Guides and tours tab. Under new features, you’ll be able to see at quick glance what’s new and how you can use it to manage your awards program.

You’ll also see a link to our latest software release notes, where you can get the scoop on all the new features and improvements released each month.

Tours to guide you through the platform
