  • Manage judging has been released! 🥳 This new judging dashboard offers users a bird’s eye view of all judging configurations and progress in one simple view. 
  • You can now add a shortcut to Saved views. Shortcuts are added to the top of the list view where the Saved view is applied. This is also available to judges! 
  • A Zapier integration tool is now available in-app under the Developers menu in Settings. A convenient way to find applications that can integrate with Award Force via Zapier.
  • A new login code has been added for SSO (Single sign-on) users who already have an account. They will now automatically be sent a six-digit code on first log-in rather than asked for a previous password. #simplify

  • The order of action buttons on the Manage entries view have been reordered and a new “Edit form” button has been added for improved user experience.
