    • Field roles

      Fields have recently been granted the power to take an increased role in review production, supported by review groups. As a Field Director, I do not currently have access to resources available to Managing Editors, which would be helpful to me as we at our Field learn about the review production process. It would be helpful if we could assign the role of Managing Editor to Field staff in Archie so that we are eligible to join ME-related discussions.

      • Permanently tick Notify the manager when task is complete when sending

        At the moment when sending workflow task emails with ticket links you first have to open the task and tick the "Notify the manager when task is complete" option under the Email tab before you send the email. It would save this step if we had the option to have this box permanently ticked in the same way as the "Notify the manager if task becomes overdue" is permanently ticked. Another possibility would be to include this option in the Edit Notifications in a person's property sheet.

          Thanks, can you clarify how often you need this, and the story behind needing it? Are most task that involve tickets not immediately followed by a task for the Manager or Editorial Base (so you get notification when your own task becomes active)?

        • Prompt to switch a review back to authoring mode upon check-in

          Here at the editorial base, we often forget to switch a review from editorial to authoring mode so the authors can implement changes. We propose that a pop-up appear upon checking in a review to ask editorial base staff if they would like to switch a review back to authoring mode.

            Would you like that message to appear every time a review in Editorial phase is checked in – or can you think of special conditions under which the message should appear?

          • I want to be able to schedule search updates in the workflows

            As a TSC, when I have completed the task 'perform literature search' for a new review, or 'update literature searches' for a review update,I would like to be able to schedule the next search to appear as a task in my organiser. I would like to be a be able to select a time period (e.g 6 months, 12 months) for when the next search should be performed. As searches are usually performed multiple times in the lifecycle of a review or review update, being able to schedule these searches in the workflows would remove the need to keep alternative,…

              Unclear  ·  UXG Administrator responded

              Would you like to have:
              a) predefined tasks in the workflow templates where you could make changes to the dates? or
              b) to be able to insert the tasks manually in the individual workflows?

            • Ticket system - copying comments

              As a TSC I would find it helpful to be able to copy my comments to my ME when using the ticket system

              • Select more than one person for the CC field in task email templates

                Currently, only when instantiating a task email, you can choose to CC more than one person.

                  There have been multiple requests related to CCing task emails over the years.

                  To be able to prioritise this, we need a clearer picture of exactly when this is needed.

                  As I wrote on a related idea: “I have major concerns about CC’ing ticket emails: sharing a ticket means we lose track of who actually completed a task. (It’s fine for information emails of course.)”
