ProceedingsBuilder Manual1 System (Management) 1.1 Basic system management
Timestamp: If more than five minutes have elapsed since the time displayed, the automated notification feature by email is not ready.
1.2 Parameters related to the communication with the office
Here you can set the intervals and the number of emails that will be sent to the office from ProceedingsBuilder. Set the values appropriate to the duration of the test run. 1.3 Parameters related to the communication with authors
Here you can set the intervals and the number of emails that will be sent to the authors from ProceedingsBuilder.
Set the values appropriate to the duration of the test run. Do not forget to set the date when ProceedingsBuilder should start reminding the authors by email.
The official deadline does not affect the email feature. The date is only used in the content of the email.
(Note: these settings only affect the reminding emails.) 2 XML 2.1 Contributions
In this section you can upload the describing data of the anticipated contributions. The contributions belong to categories.
The upload works as follows:
Remind, that the session XML file has to include all contributions in the system. After the session XML file is correct and accepted by Proceedings Builder, you cant add any contributions to Proceedings Builder any more.
If the the session XML file is not consistent with the contributions already in Proceedings Builder, you can view the text file to find out, which session has no corresponding contribution and vice versa. 3 Officers
In this section you can add administrators and secretaries.
You can change a userīs role after its creation. Secretaries only have the rights to access "participants" and "contributions".
4 Emails 4.1 Modify email content
Here you can choose an event und modify the content of the email that will be sent when the event arises.
You cannot add new events. 4.2 Form letter
Here you can choose recepients by writing an SQL query. After that you can define the content of the email.
Once an query is defined, you can save it for reuse.
(This funcionality is quite special, because you need developer knowledge to define the SQL queries.) 5 Faults
Here you can set the text that will be displayed in emails when an element is missing or faulty. You can delete or add standard faults, that will be displayed in a list for selection when you correct an element. 6 Participants
Here you can survey all authors. You can search by firstname, surname or affiliation and sort by columns. Click on detail to view or change details of the author information. 7 Contributions
Here you can survey all contributions, papers, abstracts and sessions (remind, that you can only view sessions after uploading the XML file that describes the sessions)
You may shrink the view to a subset of all contributions according to categories, e.g., research, industrial.
