Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

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.

Roles to be explained: Create new conference by lecturer

Suppose a lecturer wants to create new conference from scratch, what role he should have?
It seems that unless site admin pre creates an instance of new confernece and assigns a user as conference manager to that instance, this user won't have nothing to work on. Is this correct?

If I need to enable users to create conferences independently - not role for an instance of conference, but a role to create conferences on general - what role should I give them?? Site administrator should remain exclusive for developers or system admins?

I understand the role for instance of conference but users should be free to create their own conferences and not someone else do it for them.

Thank you
