Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Coloring submissions in the review phase

I have difficulties explaining how does the coloring of the submissions in the list of Submissions in Review work. Is there any written explanation about that? So when certain color is used. What does "no color" or white mean?

Especially interesting is when one submission has several reviewers assigned and each reviewer has done different part of work, lets say:
- one reviewer has not yet confirmed review
- one has finished it
- one is overdue for the review
How such submission will be colored?

Hi Primož,

The business rules for highlighting are implemented in https://github.com/pkp/ojs/blob/ojs-sta ... c.php#L482 -- it's code, of course, but it's not unreadable.
