How do you upload a biography?

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.

I am fairly new to OCS but have set up and run a couple of conferences through it now.
I have created one for a conference we have next year: http://conferencing.qmu.ac.uk/index.php/DCD11/DCD2012
How do I load up a biography for one of the speakers?
The only info I found was about editing the reading tool settings but is this only relevant to authors uploading presentations?

Hi Sarah,

You can add biographical information to the author information when you enter the submission's metadata. Authors can do this as they submit their papers, and directors can do this at any time by visiting the submission's Summary page and clicking the Edit Metadata link. If you have any further questions, let us know!
