Assigning specific categories to committee members (filtered committee view)

If you need to assign categories to specific committee members, follow the guidance below. This feature is not available in the FREE package.

The guidance below is for event administrators/ organisers. If you are an end user (eg. submitter, reviewer, delegate etc), please click here.

Before assigning categories, you will need to add committee members to the system. See Manage users for guidance. 

Go to Event dashboard → Advanced → Committee filter

This link will take you to the Assign Categories table. The table is formatted in a similar way to all tables in the system (See An overview of tables).


To assign committee members,  check the box next to the chosen committee member and click the Assign committee member button.


Check the box next to the chosen category (or the top one to select all), then Assign categories.


Close the window to return to the table view. You will see the categories appear in the child rows if you click the arrow in the Show categories column.


To Unassign, repeat as above, but click on the Unassign tab

In the example below, I am unassigning the category Planes from the committee member.

Click Unassign categories, close the window by clicking on the X in the top right hand corner and return to the table.


This change is then reflected in the table


When committee members login, they will only view their assigned categories.
