OCS Housecleaning

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 have two past conferences and one current one on my server. I would like to keep the final paper pdfs and remove all the submissions and reviews from the past conferences. If I use the files feature to remove the old files will that effect the pdf versions available for readers? I also have direct access to the server through cpanel.

Any suggestions would be appreciated on the best way to do this.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Hi Rick,

That won't affect the publicly-available final PDFs, but it will affect what your authors/directors/reviewers/etc. will be able to access if they log in to the system again and attempt to view eg. a submission's review page. If this isn't a concern, you should be safe removing those files -- keeping in mind to make a backup, of course!
