Completion of review form a must

Postby kennymatthew » Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:39 am

Hi,

Most of our reviews skip on filling out the review form by mistake and give their divisions and once they give their final decision they cannot go back. Is there a way to make sure that they can only select reviewers decision only after the fill the review form ?

Hi Kenny,

You could modify the form itself and make the relevant form elements required. You'd need to add some validation checks to the PHP form class and probably also a visual indicator (a *) to the template so reviewers know that it needs to be filled out. Optionally, some localized text on the form to give instruction. Let me know if you need more than that to go on.

Regards,
Jason

Hi Kenny,

The form you probably want is in classes/submission/form/ReviewFormResponseForm.inc.php
