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.

Perhaps a dumb question - but if I am notifying users (I see the progress bar - takes a while with 18000 notifications) - and I am closing the browser or disconnect the computer while this is in progress, is this process interrupted? Or can I just close the connection after initiating the mass email?

Hi Gunther,

I suspect that this will depend on your web server more than anything else -- but in most configurations the process will most likely be aborted if you close the web browser. On websites that perform batch operations, I typically use the tabbing features of my browser and carry on what I was doing in a different tab.
