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.

problem with enrollments

Hi to all,

I have a problem with user enrollments.

As site administrator, I can't enroll anyone (myself included), even if I see the options to do it:
I enter the conference --> I click on (i.e.) 'Directors' in Conference Site Management page --> I enroll my account.
Nothing happens and I am not in the list of directors.

To manage on doing it, I must login as a conference manager and enroll my account.

Then, is it only the conference manager who can do it? If so, maybe the site administrator couldn't be able to enter enrollment pages, or at least have a message saying that he can't do it as site administrator, and must login as conference manager.

Maybe you can resolve this misunderstanding and include it with the next release.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Daniela,

Can you remind me which version of OCS you are using? In 2.1, if you are a Site Admin and go to your User Home while viewing a conference website you will only see a link to the Site Administration page and not to any Conference Manager's page. It sounds like your system is working more or less properly (that is, it's not allowing non-Conference Managers to enroll users with the conference) with the exception that for some reason it's allowing the Site Admin to see Conference Manager links.
