Below we will show you how to add awards or best and fairest votes to your competition and grades.
To begin, log on to OfficialsHQ through app.officialshq.com, once logged in your dashboard will open.
To create Awards in the left-hand menu click on Configure Officials Management and click on Awards.
To begin click on the plus icon (+) on the Awards page.
On the Add Award page, select the Award types, add a Name (Normally name of the award), select the Grade. Select the Start date, select the End date for the season (Unless votes are given for finals, the end date should be the date of the last home and away match).
PLEASE NOTE: You can select each grade individually or select * for all grades. If you select * ensure you tick the Reporting per division box before saving as this will provide separate tabs for each of the grades for the report.
Click on the Save button in the bottom right-hand corner.
We must now configure the awards for which umpire, or umpires complete the voting.
To do this:
Highlight the awards
Open the settings button (Add vote configurations)
Click the plus icon.
The following matches are included in the configurations available; one day, two day and T20 matches. If a different set of votes is to be given to these matches for example, both umpires provide a separate set of votes for one day and two day matches and joint set for t20s then they will have to be configures separately.
If all votes are the same for all formats, then select all in the dropdown box.
If your set up includes both umpires needing to enter votes, each umpire will need to be set up individually.
To set up umpire one change the Number field to 1 and select the Game Types you wish for those votes to count towards.
Make sure to tick the Manual line available checkbox, this enables umpires to manually record a name in case a player is not recorded on the team sheet.
To set up umpire two click on the add button (+), change the Number field to 2 and select the game Game Types you wish for those votes to count towards, toggle on Manual line available and click save.
In the case where only one umpire is providing the votes make sure to enter 1 in the Number section of the Award Vote Configuration page.
