You can provide feedback to Creatives by giving ratings and commenting on entries.

  11. Team Members Tab Squadhelp offers a Team Management Feature which allows Contest Holders to invite additional team members to manage a contest. Your colleagues or team members will also be able to rate entries, as well as communicate with Creatives so you can manage the contest as a team! This feature is included in our Platinum Package but also available to add as an additional feature for $49. 
  12. Contest Info In this section, information about your contest is listed here for Creatives to see. The prize award is listed at the top followed by the time remaining in your contest. All contests by default are Private Contests, meaning that the Contest Holder is the only person allowed to see any entries. If a contest is open or closed it will be displayed here. Lastly, Creatives will be able to see if the contest is a Guaranteed Contest or not.
