Step 3: Contest rules

The Contest rules are where you define the conditions that award points, as well as Start, Stop, Finish, and Finalize the Contest. 

An example of the rule system in CompetitionLabs is shown below.

By default the start contest is pre selected as The contests parents are all finalised. That means that all the contests before the one that has to start are all finalised.

Finish the contests

Required

Model

The contest will finish when the contests have been active for more than or exactly the time between contests start and competitions end time.

Finalise the contests

Custom points is a Rule set that lets you create more complex competitions. You can add points, subtract them, multiply or use your own adjustment factor.
