– Fixed: Only Level 4 and 5 staff can see the list of reviews completed for each submission.


December 16, 2015 Release:

– Removed score values next to rating fields in Review Forms, so that reviewers can’t see them until after they have completed the review, for the sake of fairness.

– When entering a search query in the Submissions list, users can now use < > navigation arrows in the Submission Details page to navigate back and forth between the submissions that apply to the search query.

– Updated score box colors in Submissions list and Submission Details pages, for the sake of beauty. (What do you think? Let us know at our Submittable Feedback page)

– Changed default staff level to Level 1 when adding new staff. This makes it easier to add lower-level staff and gives Level 5 staff that extra boost of confidence.
