Once an abstract has been submitted, the submitter is unable to change the topic the abstract was submitted into. The submitter must delete the abstract and submit a new abstract in the new topic.
Event managers have the ability to change a topic of an abstract from the admin portal. This can be done for one or multiple abstracts in bulk.
Changing topic for a submitted abstract
- Go to Abstracts > Management > Submissions
- Locate and select the submission(s) you want to update
- Select the ‘Tools’ dropdown and select “Change topic...”
- Select the new topic from the dropdown box
- Click “Save”
Note: You can also change the topic by double clicking on a submission from the Abstracts > Management > Submissions page. Choose a new topic from the ‘Topic’ dropdown and click “Save”.
