New ticket entries can be submitted toward a ticket prize option until 11:59 p.m. on that specific ticket prize option's end date. You can set the end date to be any day during or after your challenge end date, although we generally recommend setting all your ticket prize options' end dates to the day or the day after your challenge ends. The time zone for your drawing end date is dictated by your site-wide time zone.
Once the end date has passed, readers and administrators can no longer deposit tickets toward ticket prize options. If you would like to change the end date for a ticket prize option, follow the steps below.
- Log in as a library administrator and navigate to Challenges.
- Edit the challenge in question and navigate to the Tickets tab. Once there, click "Edit" next to the desired ticket prize option.
- Scroll down and reset the end date. When you're done, click Save and then save the challenge as well. You can edit a ticket end date at any time, but we generally recommend only pushing back the end date, and not accelerating it, or else readers may be caught unawares with tickets left to spend when the drawing closes!
