We’ve just added a couple of features to the site that should make managing submissions a little easier for call admins:

We’ve changed the layout of the Submission Tracker slightly to make navigation a little clearer.
Before, the navigation items for the three categories of submissions (Draft, Awaiting Approval, and Approved) were displayed at the very top of the page and were somewhat removed from the main content. Thanks to feedback from one of our users, we’ve moved the three categories closer to the content, making it much clearer that they are navigation elements.
We think it’s a huge improvement. We hope you do, too.
Call administrators now have the option of testing a call in ProposalSpace before making it live.
Here’s how it works:

Our drag-and-drop form builder now allows multiple checkbox items in a single form element.

We’ve just released two enhancements that make the site a little easier to use.
For call administrators: We’ve made it easier—and faster—to view submission details from the Submissions page. Previously, when you clicked on a submission’s title, you were taken to a new page. Now, the same information is displayed in an overlay.
For authors: We’ve added a tab to the top of the proposal screens that links to the call’s submission instructions. Now you have access to that information throughout the entire submission process. (Previously, the instructions were only displayed when you first created the proposal.)
Let us know what you think!
ProposalSpace now allows you to accept late submissions for a call without having to change the call’s official submission deadline. The new setting (to the right, cleverly named “Late Submissions”) is on the Submission Settings page right below the Submission Deadline field.
If you enter anything other than zero in the field, ProposalSpace will continue to allow submissions for that number of days without altering the official submission deadline. We’ll also display a notice to users letting them know that although the submission deadline has passed, late submissions are still being accepted.
We’ve extended our introductory pricing another month!
Just start a call in ProposalSpace before April 1, 2010 and you’ll lock in the special pricing of $49.95 to activate the call and $4.50 for every submission. You don’t have to activate the call before April 1, you just have to create it by then.
So hurry up and start your calls before this offer ends!
ProposalSpace has always been the more affordable way to manage abstracts. We’ve worked hard to create a site that gives conferences all the tools they need to collect, review and select proposals for a fraction of the cost of traditional abstract management systems. But some of our users thought our pricing was a little too complicated and the base price for smaller conferences a bit too high. So we decided to do something about it.

We’ve reorganized the My Calls, My Proposals and Call Settings pages to remove some of the clutter and to make things easier to find. All of the functions that were on the My Calls and My Proposals pages are still available, we just moved them to the Call Settings and Proposal Details pages.
Call administrators will also notice a big change in the navigation for the Call Settings page, which now has the basic settings, tools and settings for all the major functions (submission, review, selection, notification) accessible via tabs across the top of the page. We also created a way for call administrators to archive completed calls so that they’re not in the way but can still be accessed if need be.
Our latest software release fixes a number of issues for users with the latest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 8).
