Author can't see session type when they view/edit submission

Postby tshore » Tue Oct 15, 2013 10:45 am

I posted this in the Technical Support forum quite some time ago. It never received a reply. I'm assuming that's because it isn't a technical problem, but rather a feature request. So I'm reposting here, just in case any active development of OCS is planned. And frankly, I consider this to be more of a bug report than a feature request. This is basic information that is required for authors, directors and conference managers, but is not available.

So if a director goes in to edit/view the details of a submission, they see the session type and they are able to change it. When an author goes in to look at/modify their submission, they can't see what session type they selected.

In fact, session type is missing in a number of places throughout the site:
    Papers report (this may have been added for the next release of OCS)
    Presentations page
    Presentation detail page (paper/view)
    Directors list of submissions (director/submissions/submissions{Unassigned-InReview-Accepted}
    Stats & Reports page

Hi Trudy,

This has already been filed at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=5286, but I'll include a link there that points to this specific list of requirements.

Thanks Alec. Any news on the possibility of a real OCS update?

Hi Trudy,

Nothing yet -- OCS won't receive a major burst of development attention until after OJS 3.0 is released. See http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php/General_Software_Milestones for our current milestones.
