There are a few steps to setting up your competition in RocketJudge. They can be done in almost* any order:
Add your event details in the Event Dashboard
Add your Criteria in the Criteria panel
Add your Groups (if you have them) in the Group panel
Add your Competitors in the Competitor panel
Add your Judges in the Judges panel
The only important order is that if you have Groups for your competitors/judges, you must add the Groups first.
These steps can be completed months to weeks before your event, up to moments before your competition begins.
