Having some general problems setting up rulesets for sweepstakes. The results looked off to us, so we calculated by hand and got something different (very different).
Sample problem: going to Results > Reports > By School > Sweepstakes > Congress Calculation only showed two schools with Congress points though there were 5 schools in finals. The rules for that set are:
25 points for 1st place overall in all rounds
20 points for 2nd place overall in all rounds
15 points for 3rd place overall in all rounds
10 points for 8th place or better overall in all rounds
Originally, there were no rounds excluded, but when I excluded the prelim, the results were all the same. Perhaps this is a UI issue; there are no values in the limits section (all left blank).
General questions about this/things that would have helped us troubleshoot on our own:
- Is there a more extensive guide to setting up sweepstakes rules somewhere?
- Is there a way to generate a report or spreadsheet that gives a granular breakdown of what's getting calculated and where?
- There seems to be extensive support for hand-tabbing sweepstakes on Tabroom, is this because it's wonky or, more likely, works perfectly but has to be set up properly?
Thanks for the help.
