Description John Willinsky 2007-03-01 00:16:37 PST
To automate the selection of Section Editors, have the SE for that Section assigned one at a time to the submissions as they come in. They will be listed as per current set up, and can be deleted, of course, and another one added. 


Section Editors       
Botton of chart

[ ] Automatically assign Section Editors to manage submissions in this section.
      Assign them to manage (O) Review stage, ( ) Editing stage, ( ) Review and Editing stages.

Following on Gunther Eysenbach's suggestion.

Implemented, with the exception of the UI addition for the section form (pending introduction of the section_settings table)
Comment 2 Alec Smecher 2007-03-15 14:07:45 PDT
When completed, this should be synced with OCS (bug entry #2663, roughly)
Comment 3 Alec Smecher 2007-07-05 15:04:53 PDT
At the risk of making more work for myself, wouldn't it make more sense to allow Managers to choose editorial vs. reviewing tasks for Editors on a per-Editor basis? That way they could e.g. designate two editors as Reviewing sec eds and a third as an Editing sec ed.
Comment 4 John Willinsky 2007-07-05 23:49:12 PDT
Excellent idea. It suggests having a list of Section Editors appear under Section Editors, with a four-part pulldown

Section Editors
Section Editors to be assigned to manage review and/or editiing of submissions to this section, either manually by editor, or automatically in rotation, with possible over-ride by editor.
[X] Section EditorA      [Assign Manually                       ]
[X] Section EditorB      [Auto-assign to review              ] 
[X] Section EditorC      [Auto-assign to editing             ]
[X] Section EditorD      [Auto-assign to review/editing ]
[  ] Section EditorE       [Assign Manually                       ]

Implemented -- and not necessary to sync with OCS2 since the distinction between reviewing and editing SecEd assignments doesn't apply.
