Notify Section Editors of new submissions

Postby jmax » Fri Dec 12, 2008 3:52 pm

If an editor manually assigns a submission to a section editor, this happens by way of a notification e-mail (with on eof those handy URLs that the section editor can click to go directly to the submission).

BUT if there is a single Section Editor for a section, and a submission arrives, the Section Editor is automatically assigned, and no such notification e-mail is sent.

Is there some way of triggering that assignment notification without needing the explicit involvement of the Editor?

I actually just sent a similar topic in another thread (see below)
In my case, section editors are automatically selected - even if there are several available per section.

...> My other post:
I just upgrated form OJS 2.1.1.0 to 2.2.2.0 and I realized after the first manuscript submission since then that the system automatically assigns section editors to new submissions.
Where can I disable it. I want to manually assign section editors to new submissions.
Thank you

Hi John,

Apologies, I must've missed this post the first time around. We're currently discussing a fine-grained refinement of our platforms' notification systems -- see http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3922 for example.

I've written your particular issue up as a bug report: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3947. Please feel free to Cc yourself to that, and post any other comments as necessary. As I wrote in the report, from what I can tell Section Editors assigned to a specific section will receive the Notification of Author Submission email as set in Journal Setup Step 3.6 -- however, this isn't a perfect solution as it's not tailored to the Section Editor as is the email you are discussing.

Cheers,
James

Hi Thalamus,

I answered your question in the thread you mentioned -- please try to keep questions to one thread only.

Cheers,
James
