Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Hi,

The conference manager for the site I'm administering is trying to e-mail all the users registered on our site. Is there any way of doing this? Firstly, the users in 'All Users' can only be viewed in batches of 25, and secondly it doesn't show all the users registered, just the ones enrolled...

Hi josno,

Unfortunately, OCS doesn't currently have the "Notify Users" functionality that OJS does. You can, however, change the number of items that appear in any given list under Website Management Step 3.4; then, as Conference Manager, you can click the "All Users" link and email all users on that list at once.

The issue concerning registered vs. generally enrolled users exists because OCS has been built as a multiple-conference-capable system: this means that users must appropriately register themselves for your conference in particular, separate from the system as a whole. There have been a few discussions in this forum and in OCS Discussion regarding automatically registering users as readers (or otherwise configuring conference registration); a quick search should turn up some leads, but if you have any further questions, please ask.

Cheers,
James

Bulk Email Users

Thanks for this somewhat no-brainer solution!! If only I was reading the forms more carefully I would have known how already.
Just had to add "Bulk Email Users" in here for others who might search for that term :-)

Thanks again,
Tyler

Thanks, Tyler -- and FWIW, OCS 2.1 comes with a Notify Users option; you can specify which level of users you want to notify. IIRC, this is available for Directors.

Cheers,
James
