Editing your submission
This article outlines the steps needed when editing a submission. You can edit your submission under these circumstances:
- Before the submission deadline
- After your paper has been accepted to the conference, when uploading your final draft
The first thing you have to do, is log into your Ex Ordo account.
Step 1) Find your submission
To find your submission, look for the My Submissions or My Final Submissions card on your dashboard and either select Edit under the relevant submission, or View in List to see your full list of submissions. If you choose Edit on the submission, skip to Step 3.
Step 2) Select your submission
From the submission list, click on the paper that you wish to edit. This will bring you to the submission overview page.
This is the submission overview page. Here you can see all the information about your submission such as title, authors, abstract, topic areas, track, presentation format and the date it was submitted. To edit your submission, scroll down to the bottom and click on the Edit button.
Step 3) Edit your submission
Now you are in the submission workflow. It's the same as the paper submission workflow, except you can now access any step in the workflow simply by clicking on it. Yay! So if you have to edit the author email addresses, or maybe correct your title text , then simply click on Authors or Title and Abstract.
Once you are on the section of your submission that you would like to change, simply click on the text boxes, or on the author's names in the author list and type to make your changes. You can also use our text editor to spruce up the layout of your abstract - to find out more about our text editor, see here.
In any step in the workflow, once you have made your changes, you can click on the Done: Go To The Next Step or Save Submission at the bottom of the page to save your changes. Click through all the steps in the workflow on the side. Once you reach the final step and click Save Submission you will be shown a new submission receipt on your screen, updated with the changes that you've made.
Ta dah! Your changes have been made!
