Closing the ability to change abstracts

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.

Closing the ability to change abstracts

The deadline for making revisions to our conference's accepted abstracts has now passed. Are we able to close that off so that accepted speakers can't continue to go into OCS and make further revisions.

Hi Jane,

See viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2675&start=0 -- you'll find a breakdown on how OCS manages editorial access to submission metadata (including abstracts, etc.). Accepted abstracts shouldn't be editable after the submission deadline, unless the author is also a director within the system. Is this not the case for you? Which version of OCS are you using?
