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.

Assigning roles

The instructions to change roles within a conference are not very clear.
I created a user to whom I wanted to assign a reviewer role. Besides Conference manager, OCS does not give me any other options. Is there a way to re-assign a role to a user ?

Thank you,
Nora (somewhat puzzled :?: )

Hi Nora,

Since the Reviewer role is only pertinent to scheduled conferences, you will have the option to add new reviewers once you have created a new Scheduled Conference. Please let me know if you need any further explanation.

I was trying to assign the reviewer role within a scheduled conference.

I go to the Roles section, I choose Reviewer, to assign the role to a user already registered in the OCS system. I can't call up all the users to assign their roles. When I go to the Users section, Register this user to this Conference, again the only choice I have is Conference manager.

There is definitely something I'm not getting :?

On the website of the Conference itself, I can't register as a reviewer either. Anyway, I couldn't find where I could do it.
