The 'Conference Form' feature allows you to create supplemental forms which are connected to either conference submissions (abstracts/presentations) or to the conference itself.
This process assumes that a user has created a conference submission. The primary submitter may have also added co-authors/presenters for that submission.
Depending on your conference needs additional data may be required to be collected. It is sometimes more ideal to collect this additional data on another form (as opposed to on the abstract/presentation form itself).
To collect additional information you must first create a new form. To do this, go to the form module. Please review this guide.
Once the form is created you need to adjust this form's settings:
Go to Settings -> Manage Settings and adjust:
Who Is Responsible
Who is Responsible indicates what users should submit this additional form. This assists in determining who is required to submit this form and therefore allows you to view progress and follow up related to this form.
In some cases the form must be completed by all authors once per conference. In others it may just be the primary submitter once per speaker submission (abstract/presentation). You must indicate this.
Once the form is configured properly, you then need to go back to your Speaker Submission module and configure where in the submission steps process this form is to appear, and to whom it is to appear for.
Please use this guide to add this disclosure form as a step in your submission process.
Related forms can be added before the submission process starts or can be made visible only to approved speakers. The choice and flexibility is yours.
This will allow you to connect an additional speaker form to a specific conference submission.
NOTE: You rarely need to do this. A speaker will submit their own disclosure or other additional form themselves via the front-end side. You only need to do this if you are assisting users or adding speaker submissions yourself - ie. invited speakers.
This guide assumes the speaker submission (abstract/presentation) already exists.
