Reactivating a reviewer who initially declined a review in OJS 3.1?

It happens sometimes that a reviewer declines an invitation but notes that they could do the review if given more time. In OJS 2.4 there was a browser commandline command to reactivate a reviewer. It does not work with OJS 3.1, and I cannot find any system command to reactivate a reviewer. Is there any means to reactivate a reviewer.

This feature should be added to OJS. We need this couple of times per year. While waiting the correction to OJS, has somebody resolved the problem?

Hi @pnygren,

This is filed for attention at Improve editor control over reviews · Issue #2508 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub – in the meantime, as with OJS 2.4, you’d need to either intervene in the database or create a new review round.
