Export OCS data to create name badges of attendees

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.

Is there a way to do this in OCS? I can see that there is the ability to export the papers, but nothing for the users.

Anyone know? Thanks in advance.

Hi mstreet,

There isn't an automatic way to do this, but it would be a useful candidate for a plugin. If you have the expertise to develop such a thing, go for it!

Hi mstreet,

The best way to extract this data is currently using a tool like phpMyAdmin. If you can provide some information on the type of report you want to extract, I can suggest some SQL.

Hello all,

I recently uploaded a Mailing List Plugin that exports as CSV a few extra columns of information that could be used for name tags.
It brings a lot of the default info from the registered users report (from the Director level), but also groups in different columns full name, institution and address (which you would remove for name tags).

Check to see if it helps you.

You can also modify the plugin to fit your needs.
