Normally in ProposalSpace calls are automatically archived by the system one year after activation. But things aren’t exactly normal right now, so we’ve decided to extend that period for a year.
The extension applies to calls activated January 1, 2019 through April 30, 2020 with a submission deadline on or after January 1, 2020.

Call admins can now select specific questions to use for session titles, role-user names, and role-user organizations in the Publishing Module.
Previously the system made its best guess which questions to use. (Basically it used the first question in the main submission form for the session’s title, the first question in each role form for an individual’s name, and the second question in each role form for that individual’s organization.)

Have you ever wanted to organize your call’s proposals using your own taxonomy? Well now you can, with labels!
Call admins can now create and apply custom labels to any proposal. They’re completely under your control. You decide what to call them and which proposals to assign them to. You can then use them to find proposals according to the labels they’ve been assigned.
And the best part? They’re included as a core module at no additional cost and with every call, new or existing!

Call admins can now use profile information for default answers in role forms!
Previously, the only two questions in a role form that could be auto-filled with information from a user’s profile were name and organization—both of which were hard-coded into the form. And with any other question you could only define static text for a default answer.
Now, the question-settings dialog has an additional Default Answer option for all text questions, including name and organization. You can still provide specific text to auto-fill the answer, but now you also have the option to select a data element from the user’s profile.

Roles are an essential component of ProposalSpace. Not only do they allow for greater flexibility when collecting proposal information, they also make certain functionality possible, like the Advanced Scheduling Module’s conflict checker.
Unfortunately, they’re also one of the most misunderstood and misused features.
So what are roles?

We’ve made an exciting update to the Review Module that now allows conditional questions as part of a custom review form!
What’s a “conditional question”, you might ask? Continue reading Conditional Review Questions
Submission received!As soon as our system receives a submission, it immediately emails a receipt to the person who submitted the proposal and, if different, the person who created the proposal. Previously, the contents of that email weren’t editable.
Now, with our new Custom Receipt Module, you can customize the receipt by editing the Subject line and adding text to the body of the message. Continue reading New Feature: Customizable Submission Receipt
