Approving Participant’s Application

To participate in the competition a user must submit an application (see the document Submitting Application Form). After the application form is submitted NorrCompetition automatically creates an associated participant.

After this moment the application and participant become fully bind to each other. The change of application’s data or participant’s data has the following flow:

  • If application require moderation then any change in application’s data (in front-end) will be applied to participant only after the approval of this changes (see the document Participant’s Data Comparison)
  • Any change in participant’s data (in administrator section) will be applied to participant automatically (see the document Managing Participants).

There are two ways to approve the participant’s application:

1. Proceed to Control panel: Components > NorrCompetition. You will see a module that displays applications waiting for approval. Click on the application you want to approve. Participant’s edit form will open. Set the value of the Approval field to Approved and save the participant.

2. Proceed to participants list: Components > NorrCompetition > Participants. Set the value of the approval status in the left sidebar filter to Unapproved. Select the applications to approve from the list and click on the Approve button on the top toolbar.

Attention: An application becomes competent participant only when it is approved.

Warning: This notification will be sent to all users who have Receive System Emails parameter set to Yes in their profile.
