Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Is it possible to added a custom type of Submission Type/Material?
Currently there are title and description, but can we add fields like dropdown and radio buttons offering more choices?

You can access this page within OCS at User > Conference Site Management > Scheduled Conference Setup

Hi JeanPaul,

Adding additional fields to the metadata set will require code modifications. See e.g. https://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6941 for some discussion of how to do this.
