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.

I have a question about a general problem and an idea about a fix which may or may not work. I hope it's ok to create a new thread, maybe people will have many things to say on this.

I would like to be able to add a "tag" to the user record, specifically this would be a tag about membership of an association. This is important because they may pay a different fee but also because I may want to send an email to them and so on.

I want control over this "tag" so not something they can change themselves in their profile.

Suppose I create a dummy conference and I do not make it public. Then I enroll the users that are members (I guess it does not matter with which role). This will then let me send an email to these people, but also print out a "membership" list using a report, and of course I could add or delete people.

Would that work? Can I make sure they have no control over enrolling or unenrolling?

Thanks, marcoB

P.S. thanks to all the people on this forum, it works very well.
