I want to change the statuses of some comments a reviewer sent me, but I do NOT want them to be notified about the status changes. (For example, I may want to change the status on a comment to “Don’t fix,” but don’t want them to know that I’m ignoring their feedback.) Do reviewers automatically get notified of status changes to their feedback and, if so, can I, as the publisher, prevent that, and, if so, how? I looked at all of the settings (and read the help file, but couldn’t find anything on that.)
On a separate note…If I change the status of a comment to “Archived,” will I still be able to go back and find it later, if I need to (and/or “unarchive” it)?
Thanks, in advance, for any and all help! 🙂
