I think this might vary between versions. Presumably you’re using a version of 3.3? I think you’re right, these settings look different in 3.3. We’ll try to update the documentation as soon as we can. You’re right that the notification of author submission is removed, but I’m not sure about it coming back (I recall hearing this, but I’ll have a look to be sure). I don’t think the option for automated email reminders is there either, but there are two options that you can configure to send reminders in 3.3:
If you use those, you can set a time setting for the reminder, but if you leave them blank, then it shouldn’t send out a reminder.
I’ll get back to you on the other issues that I note above.
And for version 3.4, there is a screenshot of notification of author submissions functionality within it’s own tab. I think they maybe bringing this back!
Does 3.4 have a release date?
Also regarding the emails that are associated to the response reminder box’s, could you tell me which email templates are linked to this, as weirdly we have 2 response reminder templates, but nothing for a review reminder.
In particular, I think the emails in this case are: REVIEW_REMIND and REVIEW_REMIND_AUTO.
You may not be seeing them in your OJS instance (presuming you’re running 3.3) - I’ve checked and they do appear to still be in the system (I tested on 3.3.0-8), but, of course, not actively used since they tend to rely on this configuration.
Sure thing. Consider it closed. You can just @ me (@rcgillis) on the topics you considered to be closed and it is also helpful if one particular post on the thread is a solution that you can mark it as a solution (there is an option underneath the post).
