If you are looking to do an online qualifier, or if your competition will be done off-site with scores submitted by athletes, then you will want to make sure your competition is formatted to be "online".
To change your competition settings to be "online":
From the competition dashboard, select the “Manage” button on the competition you want to activate online scoring for.
Select the "Marketing" tab in the side bar.
Select the "Setup" sub-tab.
From here you should see the "Online Scoring" checkbox as the bottom on the page.
Check the box and save your changes.
Online competitions open up the Online Scoring sub-tab in the Marketing tab, where you can edit multiple details about online score submission. Be sure to go here after setting your competition online to ensure the open/close dates for scoring and instructions for online score submissions are correct.
