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.

Hi all,

is there a way to send a mail to many addressees from a non-administrative account? I see that Directors have no access to the lists of users...

One more question: I can't find an easy way to modify the number of displayed lines in the lists of users? If there isn't one, I dive into the source code...

Many thanks

Marco

Hi Marco,

Oddly, I was wondering the exact same thing about sending emails last night. I may file this as a feature request for 2.1, but no guarantees that it'll get in.

For managing list size, you have to be logged in as Conference Manager: see Conference Site Management --> Website Management --> Step 3.4.

Cheers,
James

Hi Marco,

To clarify: I think Directors/Track Directors shouldn't necessarily have access to whole lists of users for the system; but they should have the ability to mass-mail certain groups at certain times, ie., authors, readers, registrants.

Any comments on this?

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

I definitely agree. That's exactly what I intended, even though I probably wasn't clear in my explanation....

Thanks

Marco
