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.

Dear all,

I've have installed and used OCS for a few times. I have 2 questions/suggestions to the OCS developers:

Is it possible to iterate the submission into more than one phase? At the moment, after doing a submission and review, we have to accept submissions and put it up as presentations. Can we ask the authors to resubmit a revised version and do a second round review (based on the first round) before accepting them as presentations? We find that in many cases the submissions will need to be revised quite often. We want to separate the first submission files and second submission files by a more clear-cut phase if possible on the GUI.

Second, could we include an automatic reviewers allocation function on the OCS? Cause I find that the process of inviting people to take up the reviewer job by email may be too long. Some people refuse to pick up the job and sometime people saying that they are not familiar with a particular field. Is it possible to let reviewers to state their area of interests and do a mapping automatically?

Thanks a lot.
