Pairwise Administration

Pairwise Prioritization: Duration 3 min.

Introduction

Use Pairwise administration to enable comparison voting. The above video explains how to configure Pairwise as an Administrator. 

           

WARNING

You cannot make changes once the Pairwise phase starts.

           

 

How it Works

Pairwise voting can be configured for a specific voting period based on start and end dates or for a select stage in the idea lifecycle. It can also be restricted to specific member roles.

           

NOTES

Reputation does not influence what ideas appear in pairwise voting. Also, the idea owner's reputation is not influenced by the pairwise results.

Within challenges, it is not possible to change the pairwise settings after the pairwise challenge phase has begun.
