Feature rqst: Send submission ack e-mail to all authors

Postby jksrecko » Tue Sep 07, 2010 7:46 am

Hi,

When setting up OJS for a journal, I was requested to configure OJS to send submission acknowledgement e-mail to all the authors. Set aside reasons for the request, this might be a useful feature to have in OJS.

Of course, I've patched the production system, but not in line with development guidelines. To properly implement it, I'd have to define a journal setting, make it editable somewhere on the journal setup pages, and use it in templates and actions for the last step of the submission process. I'd probably have to define another locale key, to display different message at the last submission step.

Any suggestions?

Hi jsrecko,

Your steps sound reasonable to me; if you have any specific implementation questions, please feel free to let us know; and of course, we'd love to see a patch when you're done!

Cheers,
James

Here comes the patch, announced long time ago...

It's against OJS-2.3.3-3 version (latest stable).

Notice that I changed some existing message keys to reflect what's truly going on in the system. Those are author.submit.confirmationDescription and manager.setup.notifications.description.

Comments are welcome.

Hi jksrecko,

Thanks for contributing; I've filed the new feature under http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6638 and we'll review it prior to the release of OJS 2.4. (The 2.3.x "stable" line probably won't receive any new features that involve localization key changes, as we'd need to coordinate a round of translation updates, which is currently out of scope for the stable line.)

See also http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2928 for a related entry on allowing co-authors to access the submission status pages.

Regards,
Alec Smecher
