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.

Schedule presentation

I'm giving OCS a test spin on my own server while reading the OCSinanHour manual. Unfortunately, the section about the Scheduler ends with "After you have created buildings and room" on page 51, so please allow me a (probably dumb) question:

I do understand the ordinary process, like abstract->review->scheduled presentation. However, I do have invited speakers who give plenary presentations. Those people have big names, and they will normally neither register, nor will they hand in an abstract. Hence my question: how can I create a presentation at a specific time in a specific room without going through the process of handing in an abstract?

And, as we are at it: is it possible to have different sections combined with plenary presentations. This would look something like:

08-10: Section 1 | Section 2 | Section 3
10-12: --------------- Plenary Session ---------
02-04: Section 1 | Section 2 | Section 3

Hi Simone,

There are two options: 1) you could create the plenary session yourself on behalf of that speaker (there is no requirement that user accounts, i.e. an Editor who submits a presentation, be the same as the author, i.e. the person who is listed on the schedule as giving the presentation), or 2) you could create a Special Event for the plenary, which is also a possibility within the scheduling system.
