Submissions and Symposia¶
In this way it is possible for normal submissions to store different data and follow a different workflow to Symposia submissions.
Submissions and Sponsors¶
A project needs to collect normal submissions but also information from sponsors of a conference.
A Submission Type for normal submissions is created and a Submission Type for sponsors.
Award Applications for different Categories¶
An award ceremony has several different categories and each category needs to ask different questions from the nominees. Each category follows the same judging process.
A Submission Type is created for each category. Each Submission Type uses a different Data Definition so that different questions can be asked but they share the same Workflow because they follow the same process.
