One of the first steps in preparing your abstract event is creating topics.  As abstracts can cover a wide array of subjects, topics can help organize abstract submissions and provide quicker access to running specific topic-related reports.

A default closing date can be added which applies to all topics. Alternatively, you can specify a unique closing date for each individual topic. Topics can also be made “backend only”, preventing submitters from selecting the topic. Create topics by taking the steps below:

  1. Go to Abstracts > Setup > Topics
  2. Click "Add"
  3. Enter a 'Description' for the topic and select a 'Closing Date'
  4. Manage reviewer access rights to the topic by selecting people from the list and clicking "Add" (this may be done at a later date)
  5. Click "Save"

Once topics and reviewers are created in your event, you can manage reviewer access to topics by editing the topic. This can be done at any time.
