Description James MacGregor 2011-11-16 15:45:37 PST
The following are problems when the scheduled conference's submission method is "Abstract submission only; no file upload"

1) When a track director chooses "Revisions Requested" and notifies the author, the author is allowed to upload an Author Version file to the submission's Review page, under Director Decision. They shouldn't be able to upload a file -- rather, there should be a link to their Edit Metadata page. 

2) When the author submits their revised version and notifies the Track Director, the Track Director currently only sees what/whether the author has uploaded any revised files, under Director Decision. This should be removed, and a link to the submission's metadata should be added. 

... Ideally, the author's metadata (esp. abstract) would be versioned, as uploaded files are; but I'm assuming that that is a fairly large undertaking.
