The EiC would like to add confidential notes to the notes section. For example, if there is an appeal on a paper, the EiC wants to add notes that the editor cannot view. There is also an Executive Editor or Senior Area Editor role for this journal. Depending on the situation, the EiC would like to be able to click a box for a role, and have that role blinded to the notes comment. I think this would be beneficial to other journals as well.
