Keep welcome email option unchecked as default on Create New Reviewer page

When I am logged in as section editor and I go to the Create New Reviewer page, the check box for “Send the user a welcome email containing their username and password” is checked by default.
We would like to not send reviewers the welcome message, and it is easy to miss unchecking this option while creating a new reviewer.

Is there anyway that we can have the default for this check box as unchecked?

Many thanks!

Hi @lubna,

The default state of that checkbox is implemented per this part of the code:

If you’d like to change it, you can modify that code to hard-code a different behavior.
