The great thing about nomination process is that you can farm out the nominations them selves to the families and or the invited centres (if doing an inter centre carnival)...but you want to make sure all the nominations are protected from being over written accidentally.
Here are some tips to make sure you keep your nominations safe and accurate:
1. Set up the meet date as nominations only - click here for more information
2. Export out a copy of your nominations to excel at points of importance. This will let you re import them as they were at the time of export - click on the export button up the top left corner of the nominations page
3. Close the nominations so that families and invited centres can not edit - click here for more
4. Don't press the Nominate all or Denominate All buttons...these will remove everyone from the nominations or put everyone in the nominations. Not handy, unless that's what you want.
