Set 'Director' as default?

Postby btcharpied » Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:16 pm

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!
