Problem with open access to the papers

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Problem with open access to the papers

Dear colleagues:

We have a problem with managing a conference (on system in 2.3.6).
The conference has already been created, add announcements and presentations were
posted. The problem is that despite setting the field "papers are freely
accessible to all site visitors", when we enter without not log user and try to
open the papers list, appears a message: "You still do not have access to the
presentations from the event." We create a "generic" user (with the username
"lector" -reader-), but we can not access the pdf of the papers with that user
(even assigning role of author or reviewer).
We wanted to know how to fix that problem, because we treat all forms (also we
create a "registration" for that user, but it has not results).
Can there be a mistake on the post of the papers?
Thank you very much,
Best Regards

Hi dambil,

Have you checked your timeline form? There should be a date specified there for when the papers will be posted.
