Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Automatic e-mail prompts

As a newbie, we are still trying to figure out exactly how the system works. We have our first article out for review and it seems that prompts to reviewers have to be sent out manually, while we are not prompted when
completed reviews are returned but rather have to keep checking
files to see what has happened to them. Is this correct? Or are we missing some system settings that would generate automatic e-mailings to
reviewers when their due date has passed, and notify editors when
a completed review has been returned?

Hi Mike,

Review requests to reviewers need to be sent out manually, but once an initial request has been sent out, reminders can be configured to go out automatically (see the "Scheduled Tasks" section in docs/README).

When a reviewer completes a review, the last step is to send an email back to the editor explaining that the review is finished.

These two emails have templates that can be customized or not, as desired, both by the person who is sending the email and by the Journal Manager using the "Prepared Emails" interface.
