I guess I may not understand or have different expectations of OCS 2.1.2 than how it actually works. I am going to back to the beginning with my questions.
Authors (Presenters) submit both an abstract and paper in our version of OCS (ie. I have it set for Abstact and Paper together). These are assigned to reviewers using a custom form. The process works ok with reviewers resonding and filling out the form. These come through to the conference director and track directors OK. Both can view the response form and the decison by the reviewer. This where either I do not understand or the system has a problem. See the next point.
When the Track Directors makes a decision to accept,records the decison and then goes to notify author there is a button to Import Peer Forms. This works fine for Accept decisions. The results of the peer forms are included in the email. I am using the SUBMISSION_PAPER_ACCEPT template. The systems sends this with the copies of the reviews included in the email.
OK here is my question. Why when the Track Director makes a Revisons Required or a Decline decision does the system not do the same as above? Just ot tel you how important this is, two of my track directors are so frustrated after trying to test the other decisions, that they want to go back to our old process. I do not want to do this.
In my previous post I think I also mentioned that the system was not sending the SUBMISSION_PAPER_REVISE and SUBMISSION_PAPER_DECLINE emails. Rather it was sending the SUBMISSION_ABSTRACT_REVISE and SUBMISSION_ABSTRACT_DECLINE emails. I changed the TrackDirectorAction.inc.php to only send the former. This works OK.
Also I you asked in a previous post that I outline any changes made in the underlying code. Other than those I mentioned, I have changed the Locale file to make everything read Paper rather than presentations and/or abstracts.
I have not changed any of the logic in the TrackDirectorAction.inc.php file ohter than the above.
Please advise me on how to accomplish our objectives of including results of review to authors.
The other item that I do not know how to work is a way to include comments by track directors in prepared emails to authors. These seem to be only available if the author logs in and looks at the comments item to the right of Director Decision.
I apologize for making this post so long. I am confused and frustrated because obviously I am doing something wrong.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP
