After upgrading to OJS 220.127.116.11, we have noticed that when the editor rejects an article, it is not automatically archived (status=archived). It turns to status “Rejected”, instead. And then, the editor needs to manually archive it.
Is this a common issue or a modification in the submission flow behavior?
Did you reject the article when it was in the Unassigned Queue using Reject and Archive or when it was in the Review Queue using the Decline Submission feature? If you rejected the article when it was in the Review Queue using the Decline Submission dropdown menu but did not send the “notify author” e-mail, the article will not move to the archive. Once the “notify author” e-mail is sent (or skipped), the article record will move to the archive.
