Different types of users in the system

 

Account Administrator

Account Administrators have access to all of the events within their account. Once an account is set up by Oxford Abstracts, account admins can add more account admins.


Event Administrator 

This permission is set up by the Account Administrator

Event Administrators have access to specific events as determined by the Account Administrator.


Submitter

Anyone with an Oxford Abstracts account can submit an abstract to a conference or an application to a competition or award. To make a submission, they will need to know the url of the submission form, which can be copied from the event dashboard and published in your event website. You can also restrict submitters by adding only permitted submitters with their email address.


Reviewer 

The terms Referee or Grader or Judge are sometimes used to describe the role of a reviewer.

Reviewers for a particular event are set up by the Account Administrator or Event Administrator.

Reviewers can see the submissions assigned to them and they can grade the submissions.


Committee Member 

The terms Chair or Panel Member are sometimes used to describe the role of a Committee Member.

Committee Members for a particular event are set up by the Account Administrator or Event Administrator.

Committee Members can see all the submissions and all the grades for all the submissions. They can, if permissions are enabled, also make decisions.


Delegates

Anyone with an Oxford Abstracts account can register as a delegate (the Delegate Registration add-on is included in the Standard Conference Package). To register as a delegate, they will need to know the url of the delegate registration form, which can be copied from the event dashboard and published in your event website.

 

API users

API users can generate an API code and access the API documentation. They can be set up to manage specific events by the event administrator, or to manage the API for all events in an account by the account administrator.

 

Program users

When setting up access (Professional Conference Package only) to your conference platform , you can invite users who can view your program who are not registered as delegates.
