revert editors decision

Hi,

When an editor accidentally makes a decision. What are the necessary steps needed to revert back the changes? It was a new paper that was not reviewed.

Is it enough to just delete the entry from the `edit_decisions` table ?

Hi kennymatthew,

Yes, you can delete the most recent entry from that table to revert a decision.

Hi,

The editor accidentally went to round 2 by selecting resubmit for review. So if I delete the entry from table `edit_decisions` is that enough to revert the changes to go back to round 1?

Hi kennymatthew,

You'll also need to reset the current_round column in the articles table.
