Product Update: Recent Enhancements on Xathon

April 25, 2022
Hello everyone,

We are happy to share recent key product updates to Xathon.




Support for Deadline Based Assessment

We now support adding a deadline based assessment from Mettl in Xathon. This was an important ask to deliver as deadline based assessments have become more and more relevant in a hackathon environment. The submission date & time becomes the same as the round end date and time.

Ability to add/remove team members during Ideathons

Learning from real world scenarios, we have provided a major flexibility in Ideathons w.r.t. team creation and management. Just as ideas keep evolving so does the team mix. Keeping this in mind, we have provided an option to freeze/unfreeze teams as needed. If enabled, this will allow participants to join existing teams even after a round has started. We believe this change will reinforce platform maturity in collaborative environments like ideathons.

New Filter For Ideathons: Filter by Approved Ideas

In addition to ‘Most Recent’, ‘Most Liked’ & ‘Most Commented’ we have introduced a new filter-‘Ideas Approved’ that will allow all participants to view approved ideas.




Ability to download Campaign/UTM Information

We now have the ability to download event level UTM information that gets passed onto Xathon. This will reduce overheads to tech and ops team to manually export this data from the database, process it into a consumable format and share with the customer.
