Opportunity Lifecycle Overview

Zealous makes taking submissions as simple as possible by automating actions during the life-cycle of your opportunity. 

This is based on the values in your schedule, how many rounds you wish to make your selection over (e.g. shortlisting candidates) and if you invite judges to specific rounds.

Here are a few examples of opportunity life-cycles

Single round opportunities

  • No judges
Before open > Submissions Open > Submissions Close > Selection
  • with judges
Before open > Submissions Open > Submissions Close > Judging > Selection 

Multiple round opportunities

Before open > Submissions Open > Submissions Close > Round 1Round...  
  • Round with no judges 
Round X = Round X Selection
  • Round with judges  
Round X = Round X Judging > Round X Selection
  • For example, an opportunity with 3 rounds, where only the first and last round has judges would look like this
Before open > Submissions Open > Submissions Close > Round 1 Judging > Round 1 Selection > Round 2 Selection > Round 3 Judging > Round 3 Selection
