A created Competition is always put in the Ready sub-menu in the CompetitionLabs platform, as shown in the example above.

What can you do with a created Competition?

Navigate to Competitions → Ready and press on the created Competition’s Id to see information about a competition.

1. Competition state
  • Ready –  a competition that has not started. When a contest is created in a Ready competition, the contest start and end dates are identical to those of the competition.
  • Active – a competition is live and running. A competition can be Active even without a contest in it.
  • Cancelled – a cancelled competition is almost the same as deleted, except that all information is archived in its own field and folder.
  • Finished – when a competition has run for its duration and finished successfully.
2. Competition manual state change active action buttons
It is possible to manually Start or Cancel a competition.
  • Start – A competition can be started before the auto-start time, extending its duration, e.g. If a competition is set to start at 12:00 and end at 13:00, you can manually start it at 11:45, so that it runs from 11:45 to 13:00 (1 hour and 15 minutes).
  • Cancel – A competition can be cancelled in any state.
When a competition is Cancelled, it cannot become Ready, Active or Finished
