I'm a bit of a newbie here so please bear with me.
I understand how to create a new issue volume, one which we are building from scratch with author submissions, reviews, copy-edits, layout-edits, proofreads, etc. I'm a bit confused about how to create a back issue based on finished PDFs we already have. Is it basically the same process but skipping all the middle steps?
Should I create author accounts for each and every author, upload their finished PDFs, log in to my editor account and mark them as accepted and set to publish in a particular issue, log into my layout editor account and re-upload the finished PDFs as galleys, and once all the documents are in the system log back in as the editor and set the issue for publish?
Once that's all done, do I simply archive all the unassigned author submissions?
I heard someone mention a "quick submit" plugin but I can't seem to find a link to download it anywhere...
Your help is much appreciated in advance!
