Is it possible to edit user registration form?

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.

The system is amazing and is very powerful. I have some questions and I am sorry if they are stupid questions.
1. I am wandering if it is possible to add or delete fields in the user registration form. Or even make some fields required (for example affiliation).
2. I was wondering if it is possible to upload a file with registration (CV) - I need to see if I can support some registrants and they are legitimate students.
3. I know this question was answered before -saw it on the forum: creating a participants list from within OCS is not implemented yet, but is it possible for example using myphpadmin to export for example participant names, affiliation and email to a csv file? Sorry for the last question I am just not that good with mysql

In any case thanks for any answers, I am still sorting through all the options available and how to set up the paypal account but so far was very cool.

Hi Ifloresc,

Glad you're liking the software! See below for answers:

1. I am wandering if it is possible to add or delete fields in the user registration form. Or even make some fields required (for example affiliation).


You can do this, but you'll have to edit the underlying codebase yourself. There are a fair number of threads on the forum about adding/removing form fields, and also about making fields required -- just search using those as keywords.

2. I was wondering if it is possible to upload a file with registration (CV) - I need to see if I can support some registrants and they are legitimate students.


Not currently -- again, you could add this functionality, but it would be a significant amount of work. One workaround would be to add some text in the Registration Information field (under Conference Management -> Registration -> Registration Policies) asking people to email the Director their CV.

3. I know this question was answered before -saw it on the forum: creating a participants list from within OCS is not implemented yet, but is it possible for example using myphpadmin to export for example participant names, affiliation and email to a csv file? Sorry for the last question I am just not that good with mysql


You can use the Registrants report, available from Conference Management -> Stats & Reports.

Cheers,
James

Maybe related to this question: How can I remove the REVIEWER checkbox in the registration form so that the "average Joe" cannot register him/herself as reviewer?

This is done at setup for each conference. You can reduce registrants down to paper submitters if you like. In the setup, you will see a series of check boxes, toward the bottom of the setup page, uncheck Readers

Hi

Thanks for the reply. Can this be done for an already-installed conference? The link is: http://sigradi2010.uniandes.edu.co/

Yes. The organiser of the conference can enter and go back into the configuration settings.
I haven't seen where this is done, but perhaps one work around is to enter as conference organiser and change the Reader Registration date to a previous date thus closing this option. This is done in Conference Timetable and Information link in the Current Conference menu system when logged in as confernce organiser.

Thanks! Hadn't thought about that. I put "Reviewer registration opened" and "Reviewer registration closed" on dates before today.
