I have had some emails from some editorial staff’s inquiring whether they can prevent sending notification emails upon creating a new annoucement or publishing a new issue.
@asmecher, how would you feel about making these optional?
With annoucements, it would be fairly straight forward to add that as a checbox next to “Enable Journal Managers to add journal announcements.”, it would actually require only a couple of lines of code to get that working.
With the new issue, I could not figure out the best place for the setting.
Maybe it would even make sense to have a totally new tab in
Settings => Distribution => Notifications and have on/off settings there for all similar cases?
I know that you do not want to bloat the settings section (I think at least @NateWr has brought this up) while it is already now a lot to handle. But I do think that these kinds of notifications most journals would like to have some control over.
Edit: I can see that this has been asked a couple of times: Disable notification Current issue/email notification settings in connection with back issue publication Email notification disabling when publish a new issue?(ojs 3) How to delete/edit the ‘Notifications functionality’
