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.

Record Director Decision unrecorded!

Postby ponsfrilus » Tue Dec 22, 2009 2:49 am

Hi all,
I can not understand why sometimes director decision whom were recorded were unrecorded. For exemple I see that "invite presentation decision has been recorded on 2009-12-10: "Decision Invite Presentation 2009-12-10" but now I can record another decision. Can someone tell me what is doing that?

Thanks!

I forgot to say that is very ennoying because it change submission status from "Awaiting upload" to "Abstract in review" :cry:

Hi ponsfrilus,

We allow for the repeated overwriting of Director decisions in case the Director changes her mind. I am not aware of a bug or situation where a decision cannot be recorded, but a decision might not be completed until the Author has been notified by email (below the Director decision box).

Cheers,
James

Hi jmagreg,

Yes, in fact the email with the decision was sent (I can show it in the email list by clicking the small icon right the dropdown in the decision page).

What I found is that the status, submission_progress and the current_stage in the database evolve the following way:

Awaiting assignment and Abstract in review: status=1, submission_progress=0, current_stage=1
Awaiting upload (decision recorded): status=1, submission_progress=3, current_stage=2

Is there a corresponding code page for theses status?

Thanks

Hi ponsfrilus,

Are you sure you haven't tried any other sort of directorial decision on the submission -- for example, requesting a re-review? And which version of OCS are you using?

Cheers,
James
