Step 1: Click Add Entry in the left menu
This option will redirect you to the entry input page.

Step 2: Select Chapter from the drop down menu
The list is organized alphabetically by School Name.

This section is required.

Step 3: Select Student Name from the drop down menu
The list is organized alphabetically by Last Name and appears in the following format:
Student Last Name, Student First Name

Where more than one student in the list has the same Last Name, the student list is further organized alphabetically by First Name.

This section is required.

Tip: After you click on the drop down list, you can type a letter on your keyboard to "skip to" a section of last names. For example, clicking the arrow of the menu and typing "G" on your keyboard will "skip" you to the last names that begin with the letter "G".

Step 4: Select Classification from the drop down menu
The list is organized roughly in the same order as the classification appears in the official rule book. The list is mostly, but not always, in numerical order.

Adding Individuals
Individual students can only be entered one time into a particular classification.

Adding Teams
For team classifications, please add only one (1) entry per team under the student's name of the team's designated team captain. For example, for team event On Demand Video, under Student Name select the student's name of the team's designated team captain, under classification select HN521, and click save. Adding additional entries for each team member is improper and may cause confusion at your regional contest or the state contest.

This section is required.

Tip: After you click on the drop down list, you can type a letter or series of letters on your keyboard to "skip to" a section of classification numbers. For example, clicking the arrow of the menu and typing "HP" on your keyboard will "skip" you to the beginning of the High School Projects section of the classification numbers.

Step 4.1: Select Level if asked
Chapter Dashboard software tracks which classifications require level information. If a classification which does not have levels is selected, then no additional information will be required of you. If a classification is selected that requires level information, then an additional menu will appear, which requires you to select Level 1 or Level 2 as appropriate for the combination of this particular student and classification.

This section is required for those classifications which require level information.

Step 5: Input Entry Title
If you would like to title an entry or use this section to keep track of your entries in any way, you are welcome to enter a short title.

This section is optional. Information input will have no bearing on judging.

Step 6: Input Entry Description
If you would like to input any descriptive or additional information in this section, you are welcome to enter longer text.

This section is optional. Information input will have no bearing on judging.
 
Step 7: Click Save Entry button
Always save your inputs by clicking the Save Entry button at the bottom of the page. Please wait for the Chapter Dashboard software to process and save all of your inputs before navigating away from the page.

Step 8: Confirm your Entry on the View/Edit Entries page
The Chapter Dashboard software will automatically assign a unique Entry Number to the set of information you have input for this entry. The Entry Number is referenced on the View/Edit Entries page.

General Notes
Be aware that inputting and editing entries will be disabled at the deadlines specified by the State.
