Time caps

For Timed workouts, generally a time cap is programmed for the purpose of keeping the day on schedule.

There are a couple ways you can rank athletes that do not finish within the allotted time, depends on how you program your workouts, here are your options:

Option A: The easiest approach is turn on the time cap option in the workout editor.  

For Onsite events, this will enable a new option in the score entry page called TC, simply click TC, and enter the completed reps.  (This is a natural transcription from the scorecard to the system)

For Online events, this gives your athletes the option to select "Did not finish" and enter completed reps

Note: If you bake in a tiebreaker of any kind, you will need to go with Option B

Option B:
You can add 1 second for every repetition not completed (this is not always directly obvious on the leaderboard and requires a bit of math (which lends possible entry errors), check out WOD 2 of this example, which has a 16 minute time cap).
