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.

Set 'Director' as default?

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere. I hadn't seen it in the searches I conducted.

I'm trying to find a way to set a specific individual (Director) as the default. While I greatly appreciate the depth of OCS in regard to delegating track chairs and such, our conference has one individual (our Program Chair, a.k.a. 'Director') that handles all of the paper delegations. Is there some way to set this individual as the default for each paper rather than going to each individual submission and hitting 'set self'?

Hello BTC,

If memory serves, the only way to accomplish this is to assign the Director to each Track.
This way, he will automatically be assigned to any submission.
However, in OCS, it seems you'll have to register the user as a Track Director as well for it to work.
You may have to reconsider registering that user as Director, as there will be an extra role in the user's home.

Seems like a suitable work around. Okay, so I'd simply then operate as the 'Director' and then list the actual director as the Track Director...I'll give it a shot.

Much appreciated!
