Now that industries have been added, the User may start adding Recipients or Companies as entities that can be voted on. Recipients and Companies can be added to a particular industry by clicking the Add button next to the industry name. When adding an entity for the first time for an industry, both a Recipient and a Company box appear, as shown on the right.
The User may now choose any number of Recipients to add. Should a Recipient already exist in the voting blotter, a warning sign appears instead of the Add checkbox.
After Recipients have been added to a specific industry in the voting blotter, the User may only continue to add Recipients to this industry, as opposed to mixing votes between Recipients and Companies in a given industry. However, between different industries, Recipients and Companies may be mixed. See below.
Once a voting blotter has been set-up by the User, ranks and votes can be distributed.
Recipients and Companies can be removed from the voting blotter by clicking on Remove next to the Recipient/Company. When an entire industry is removed from the voting blotter, the Recipients/Companies under that industry are removed as well.
Votes can be changed at any point, even after they have been submitted, as long as the voting period is open. Once the voting period is closed, votes can no longer be changed.
