Description Alec Smecher 2013-02-21 09:09:28 PST
It's impossible to delete a submission.

Suggest allowing Managers to delete a submission anytime from the submission header (as a top-level button alongside Catalog | Info | Participants), with a confirmation modal.

Should authors be able to delete submissions too, and if so, under what conditions (i.e. before any participants are assigned)?
Comment 1 Alec Smecher 2013-02-21 09:42:20 PST
Better: this should be added as a row action on Managers' submission lists. That means deleting a published monograph is a two-step process like in OJS (first unpublish, then find it in the list and delete it). This way we don't have to give it undeserved prominence and real estate.

Fixed role name
Comment 7 Alec Smecher 2013-02-21 15:50:23 PST
Implemented against omp-stable-1_0 and master. Attached patch not tested fully against 1.0b, but should work. Authors can already delete incomplete submissions; this patch adds a row action on the Dashboard submission lists so that users with managerial roles can delete submissions as well.
