  2. Customization of revision emails

    (1) The ability to make multiple boilerplates for revision requests. My revision requests are always related to 1 of 4 things, so every time I have to request revisions I paste in relevant info. Having a handful of customizable options (including being able to have different subject lines for each), so I could choose the relevant note from a list instead, would be very handy;

    (2) Automatic insertion of record info in the boilerplate subject lines. To avoid getting a ton of emails with identical subject lines, I edit the subject by hand. Automatically piping the author's surname (or, ideally,…

  3. Send confirmation email when students submit revisions

    Confirmation emails are being sent to students who submit their manuscript for the first time. However, they are not currently sent any confirmation when they submit revisions. This is one of the most frequent questions I get regarding ProQuest ETD Admin. Students expect to get an email when they submit revisions because they got one the first time and may panic when they do not.

Students quite often have requirements outside of the ProQuest system that must be completed before we can finalize their dissertation in the ProQuest system but they have already completed the revisions in ProQuest. When students see "Minor Revisions Requested" as the status on their already revised dissertation, it is extremely confusing to them.

  5. Allow students to communicate with the ETD Administrator within the ProQuest ETD Administrator

    Currently students need to direct questions regarding requested formatting changes outside the ProQuest ETD Administrator via an external email account. This requires the administrator to look in two different places (the PQ Administrator) and their email account to properly respond to formatting questions.
