1.) Default section selection for submissions. We are primarily using "sections" for special issues of the journal. This is a rare occurrence and we'd like to have the section selection default to our main section. How hard/easy do you think this would be?
2.) Changing a heading like "Supporting Agencies" to "Acknowledgments and Disclaimers"?
3.) Where do the "comments for the editor" go? I can't seem to find them after a submission is made. I'd also like to re-name this to "Cover Letter." Again, can I just change something in a template for this or is it a deeper change?
4.) The "Status" of a submission in the editor view or author view isn't very clear when it has been given a revise and resubmit. The editor view indicates that a decision has been rendered, but it continues to be "under review." Shouldn't it go into another category? In the author view it's status is "queued for review," which it wouldn't really be any more. It would need their attention, right? Is there a good place to start this kind of customization?
5.) An indicator of some kind for reviewer steps? What step are they currently on? What should they be paying attention to? Most of our first time reviewers find it confusing what they should do next. Is this something a template would indicate, or do you think it would require deeper attention?
6.) Decision granularity. I've found:
We're looking to have a bit more granularity in our possible decisions. I think I have a good idea of what this will take.

jmacgreg wrote:The "Resubmit for Review" decision will still list the submission as under review, as it still is; this will initiate a second round of peer review. It's a little different than "Revisions Required", although in both cases the submission will still technically be under review. Only an "Accept Submission" decision will move the submission into editing.
