Differences between last_modified and date_status_modified

Hello there,

we’re using OJS 3.1.2, but I have noticed this behaviour in older versions as well. In the submission table there are two columns last_modiefied and date_status_modified. If I change something in a submission (for example the abstract text) both get a new date. I would assume date_status_modified should only change when the status auf a submission is changed, but that is clearly not the case. Is this a bug or ist the columns important for other reasons?

Kind regards

Hi @UBWolf,

Thanks, I’ve identified the issue and filed it:

There’s a patch for OJS 3.1.2-x here:
