How to configure 

  • Poster list

Create the poster list

  • Use « Create Nominee » to create each poster page
  • Use the « Linked documents » list on the poster page to add the poster’s PDF as a can document:




Create additional filters for the poster list

The country is set by default as a filter on the poster list. Go to Preferences –> Poster list filters to add further filters.

Make someone admin of the poster list

An admin can see the current number of votes for each poster on their poster list. Go to People -> a participant profile and tick the box « Poster challenge admin » :



  • Poster pages

Set limitations on the votes

  • In « Preferences », use the « Number of votes » field to set the maximum number of votes allowed per participant
  • In « Preferences », use « Restrict voting » to prevent participants from voting for certain posters based on certain participants’ properties. If the text in the chosen person field is the same as in the chosen poster field, the participant will not be able to vote for this poster.

E.g. if person field set to Country, and poster field set to Country, the participant will not be allowed to vote for a poster from the same country as his/hers.



If the user tries to vote for a poster they are not allowed to vote for, they will be warned by a popup when clicking on « Vote » and their vote will not be taken into account.
