New Portal Layout
The private reviewer portal (and public judging portal for custom contests) just had a design overall and looks great. Your logo is now front and center at the top and will not bump into our “Powered by” logo. In addition, the tabs have been refreshed and each applications now looks like a card on the screen.
When an application is selected, there is a nice new layout that makes navigiation and review even more pleasant. The previous and next links are now buttons at the top of each review (which can still be turned on or off). In addition, the “Add Review” button is clearer as is the review screen itself.
Assignment Grid Enhancements
One of the most significant improvements is in our assignment grid. First, as you can see below, we’ve made some modifications to make it look really nice. In addition, you can now scroll up and down the grid as well as right and left between users.
Last month, we released a feature on the assignment grid that enables you assign folders to certain judges. As new applications come into that folder, they will automatically be assigned to that judge.
Another new feature in the assignment grid is the “Batch Assign” feature. From this button you can have the system automatically assign applications.
For example, pick the folder, then pick the User of Page/Application. If you pick User, you can specify that each user (Judge) should get x number of applications assigned to them. WizeHive will go through the applications and evenly distribute them out to judges. If you pick Page/Application, the system will assign each Page/Application in that folder x number of times, distributing it evenly among the judges.
Letter of Recommenation Enhancements
We’ve made it more simple to track which applicants are missing letters of recommendation.
First, in the letter of recommendation setup we added a field which indicates the minimum number of recommendations that are needed for an applicant’s application to be “complete.” We also added two fields to the report writer which you can see below, “Recommendations Completed” as well as “# of Recommendations Completed.”
This will let you see at a glance which applicants still have recommendations due and how many they need completed. You can use this information to send them an email through WizeHive.
