New Group for external users
Dear Belle II Indico users,
we have created a second local group for granting permissions. This group is called ExternalUsers and is intended as a way to give non-Belle II members certain permissions on events and categories as opposed to the very broad permissions of the LocalBelle2 group. The external users with local login have to be created by an Indico admin, because we currently don't want to offer the possibility of self-registration. If you want to offer the possibility of such access to an external one, please write an email to email@example.com. The group ExternalUsers contains all accounts that only have a local login or regular accounts that have created a local account in their profile for whatever reason, as long as they have not logged in with their regular account for more than 30 days. The latter group of persons will therefore lose their membership in the LocalBelle2 group after 30 days without logging in with their regular BELLE II / DESY account. Thus, they also lose all permissions associated with it.To rejoin the LocalBelle2 group and regain all associated permissions, it is only necessary to log in once with the regular account and wait 10 minutes for the automatic group assignment mechanism to start working.
Next Indico Update brings some minor changes in the user interface
Dear Indico users,
during the next maintenance we will install a new Indico version. In this new version you will find a few minor changes in the user interface. One of these changes concerns the "Call for Abstracts", you can now find it in the navigation menu of the Manage mode of the conference under a new entry called "Workflows". The menu item "Call for Papers" will be replaced by the menu item "Peer Review", which will then also be found under "Workflows". Please have a look at the attached screenshots:
