Problem Creating a Time Block in Scheduler

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.

Problem Creating a Time Block in Scheduler

Postby msmith » Thu May 31, 2012 1:44 pm

I am trying to create blocks of time in which presentations can be scheduled.
1) Form does not allow me to schedule blocks within the date range of the conference. Only year 2012 is available. But conference is in 2013.
2) Form will not prevent me from creating blocks outside the date range. (I could just tell people to be careful, I guess.)
I have attached elucidating screen print.
Have I missed a setting somewhere? I'm scratching my head.

Hi all,

I've just committed a patch to resolve this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7861. This is intended for release in OCS 2.4.0 but should apply against 2.3.x without changes.

Do you know, when the fixed version will be available? I'll have to present the system for evaluation in the next days and this might be a point that might lead to a refusal to use the system.

Hi pilone,

Certainly not within a few days. I'd suggest patching your installation with the patch at the link above.
