Press Editor necessary?

is it necessary to have a press editor for the submission workflow?

When I don't have any press managers (and thus no press manager can be automatically assigned), I can assign a series editor who can select internal and external reviewers. But the press manager still has the task "A new monograph has been submitted to which an editor needs to be assigned."

When I have press managers and thus one of them is automatically assigned, I can remove this one and the series editor can select internal and external reviewers AND the task for the press manager is gone.

So I guess I don't need a press editor, but the pending task for the press manager or removing automatically assigned press editors is still disturbing.

Hi Carola,

A Press Editor assignment is generally required because it provides OMP with a user it knows is responsible for the submission. Otherwise there will be situations where OMP expects to email an editorial user about a submission status change or something similar and there will be no clear user account to address the message to.
