Setting up a multi-stage event

There is no limit to the number of stages you can have in an event and these can work independently ( ie - two separate submission processes) or can work together (ie - users submit to the first stage, and then may advance to the second).


The guidance below is for event administrators/ organisers. If you are an end user (eg. submitter, reviewer, delegate etc), please click here.

To add Multi-stage to your event, contact

Once you have the multi-stage bolt-on, the first step is to relabel the default stages. The process is the same for parallel, or sequential events.

Go to Event dashboard → Event details

Type over the default labels to create your stages.


Once created, you will see the stages at the top right of the event dashboard in a new panel called Stage selection. Clicking on any stage name will display the event dashboard for the selected stage where you can see the submissions, reviews and decisions in each stage. You can select the stage you want to work on using the dropdown controls.
