Understand the differences and decide whether to use a phased or parallel Challenge
A phased Challenge sets all Ideas to move through the same stage at the same time. The stage opens and closes at a set time and Ideas are then progressed together.
You cannot fast track or send Ideas back to different stages in the workflow once they are closed.
A parallel Challenge allows a continuous flow of Ideas through the Challenge supporting an always-on workflow. Ideas can move from stage to stage at any time at their own pace.
You can select whether to allow Ideas to be fast-tracked or moved backwards on the workflow.
Setting the Challenge Type
- Navigate to the Admin Settings Cog and select Add Challenge
- In the Workflow section of the Challenge Builder select Phased or Parallel Challenge
- If you have selected Parallel you can choose whether to enable fast-tracking and sending back of Ideas.
