I am currently in the process of uploading into a new OJS installation appr. 6 volumes of back issues of our journal (not quite enough to justify hand-creating XML import files), so we want to skip the review process and use the minimum number of steps necessary to publish the content, as described here: viewtopic.php?t=580
The problem is that the drop-down and button to allow an editor decision are disabled (at the bottom of the Review page), and I can't figure out what step is missing that will enable me to use that form. I understand that I can't move the article into scheduling without this decision, but I don't know why I can't record it.
I am assuming that there is some chained dependency that I am missing, but I've tried going through many other steps, including assignment to a reviewer and the review process, and still I have no luck. I thought I'd ask hre on the forum before I started digging through the code, as I have gotten good response to a previous question.
