Hello

This team has a followup question for www.robotevents.com/judging/2020-2021/QA/768.

Well, can you pls confirm when the judges will review these links. If they need now only for inventory is fine but if they will review it before April 27th then I am not sure if updating the information helps later. So the ask from team is to know, when the Doc link will be first reviewed or start for judging, this info be very helpful to set some expectation here to the team. They are making a new robot and need time to update the Doc by last April 27th deadline for all.

That form is actually 2 parts/pages one for time selection and second for notebook, so if this is only for planning for Vexiq tournament and not for judging before April 28th is good with team. Please proivde guidance here.

We cannot provide a date when the Digital Engineering Notebook (DEN) will be reviewed. The DEN links are being submitted on a rolling basis between March and the end of April and could be reviewed any time during that period. The notebooks are considered current as of the date the DEN link is submitted.

Note that judges may review the notebooks multiple times depending on the quality of the notebook and how far the team progresses in award deliberations. The engineering design process is fundamental to student learning and mentors should remember that students benefit from engaging in the documentation and planning process that is involved. Therefore we kindly remind mentors that the focus should be on student learning above winning awards.
