OCS configuration

Postby ardenhoule » Sun Oct 14, 2012 4:59 pm

Hi,

I'm managing a conference using OCS 2.3.5.0, and would like to set up automated reviewer reminder e-mails. This requires that I turn on Scheduled_tasks; however, I can't find how to edit the configuration. The User Guide shows an edit button below OCS Configuration on the System Information page for Site Administrators; however, I don't see this on my page when I log in. Any help?

Thanks,
Leah

Hi Leah,

You need to edit the configuration file server-side, using whatever access your ISP gives you to manage files. There's more documentation on this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/docs/userguide/2.3.1/systemAdministrationGeneralConfig.html; that document is for OJS, but OCS is similar in this regard. (As it describes, simply turning on the configuration option won't be enough; you'll also need to to some server configuration to make sure the scheduled tasks process is kicked off periodically.)

Great, thanks! Another question--The reviewer has a dropdown menu for submission recommendation (dropdown menu: Accept Submission; Revisions Required; Submit Elsewhere; Decline Submission). Is there any way to change these options, say to a 1-5 scale or 'Accept' 'Maybe' 'Do not accept.'

Thanks,
Leah

Hi Leah,

That would require a customization, though not a major one.
