Removing unaccepted abstracts

Postby yqg » Thu Mar 15, 2007 9:02 am

I notice several people have submitted the same abstract a number of times. Is there anyway to remove them without accepting or rejecting and then deleting in "Edit a Submitted Paper"?

Hi Nicole,

There's a work-around you can use to delete a proposal without accepting or rejecting it first. Find out the proposal's ID under the Reviews list (i.e. 10 for "Proposal #10"); then go into the "Edit a Submitted Paper" list and edit any paper. You should find yourself at a URL like

You can jump to the editing page for the proposal you want to delete by changing the 9 in the above URL for the proposal ID, e.g. 10 in the above example, and loading the page. On the resulting page, you'll be able to delete the paper.

OCS 2.0 will have a less clunky way of accomplishing this.
