Speed up the review process

Postby matnet » Wed Mar 17, 2010 6:45 am

Hi all. I have OCS

the director has decided to set the review process for reviewers in this way:
- point 3 of review steps: they do not need to leave any comment but can proceed directly to point 5.
- point 5 of review steps: they should be able to choose among these options: Reject / On hold / Accept

Therefore my question is

1) how do i let the point five to be working without fulfilling point3?
2) how do i change the menu of choices?

Many thanks for helping me with this.

Hi Matnet,

To do this you'll have to make some extensive code modifications, both to the template file that creates the review page, but also to the underlying class files. Do you have development experience at hand? If so, I'd suggest looking at how the page is created in templates/review/submission.tpl, and let us know if you need any pointers.
