Cc and bcc field when sending emails from OJS

@NateWr @asmecher

Dear PKP team,

After delivering some training in OJS 3, some of our editors have requested the possibility of adding a cc and bcc field when sending emails from OJS. For example when they send comments to authors (See screenshot)

We have noticed that the request is also common in other OJS 3 users and it has recorded as an issue on Add recipient control on email forms · Issue #743 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub.

Is it any chance to have this functionality delivered in the following version of OJS 3?

Our editors would appreciate that :wink:

Dear @asoto @asmecher

Is there any temporary solution?

This is something we hope to tackle as part of our work on emails and notifications. On our roadmap this work is planned for the 3.4 and 3.5 releases.

I do not see this on the roadmap for 3.4/3.5. Is this still planned?

I see a workaround may be to disabled One-Click Reviewer Access, but we wish to retain that feature while also being able to add CC/BCC to emails we send.

Hi @guitman444,

In 3.4 we are working on improvements to the email selection, draft and preview workflow, which would include the ability to add CC/BCC. However, we won’t be able to implement this for all emails in 3.4. We hope to support all email sending eventually, but 3.4 will probably only support discussions and maybe editor decisions.
