Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Good day,

I manage the NSPB (nspb.net) and found that we have articles slipping through the cracks, so to speak. We would like to create a "prepared email" that would notify the editors when a new "author version" document has been uploaded to the system. The goal is for the editors to receive an email notification when a revised article has been uploaded by an author. As it currently stands, the author has to email us and inform us that a revised manuscript has been uploaded. If they don't do so, we have no way of knowing this has happened.

If you have a more elegant solution for us, we are all ears.

We do appreciate your help!
NSPB

Hi there,

Thanks for posting! There is actually a "Notify Editor" email option available to the author from the Editor Decision upload area (on the author's submission's Summary page), but it has to be sent manually, and it is easy to miss as an option. Making this an automatic notification has already been identified as a feature request (see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6791, and please feel free to CC yourself to that report for future updates).

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee any sort of timeline as to when this will be added. Do you have any technical resources on hand who would be able to work on a solution? If so, we are more than happy to provide assistance in the way of help, tips, etc. If not, you may want to look at perhaps editing the template file from which that HTML page is generated, so that the Notify Editor option is highlighted/harder to ignore (and maybe placed *after* the upload field). If you'd like info on which template file to edit, just let us know.

Cheers,
James
