Change new Invite Again button - looks too similar to View Review button

The new Invite Again button for reviewers that decline/auto decline is a great feature for ease in re-inviting reviewers when it is necessary. The problem is it looks VERY similar to the View Review link which can cause confusion. Can you make a change so these two options don't look so alike? It also clutters the screen with how prominent it is. Make it could just be a link and not a button?

    Thanks again to everyone for the feedback. We updated the display of the Invite Again button to text similar to other formatting that exists on the page.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. The concept behind the button was a highly rated idea. We like the functionality, but agree the button is not providing the benefit intended. We're working towards making a UI update which will allow the View Proof button to be more obvious and not as cluttered as appears now with the Invite Again button.

    Warm Regards,

    I think that it should be easier to distinguish the "Invite Again' button from the 'View reviewer comments' button. In addition, I think that this button should be renamed 'Invite Again (Auto Declined)' to clarify that this is for invited reviewers who never responded and were 'auto-declined' by the system, as opposed to invited reviewers who declined the reviewer invitation voluntarily.

    It's definitely very confusing as it is! You need to be able to see at a glance what's happening so a different colour or something would really help. I hope this can be changed soon!

    Definitely needs to be a different colour or better yet just a link.

    The release note says it will make things easier if an invite is accidentally declined. Our reviewers decline themselves and so accidental declines are extremely rare. I am concerned that reviewers will not be happy to receive invites after they have declined, particularly if it is possible to use this button more than once for the same person.

    I agree as this makes this very hard to distinguish who has provided a report versus those who have declined. Removal of the button with just a link would be preferable as the screen is already cluttered, OR changing the colour to something less prominent.

    Or change the color so it is not the same blue as the View Reviewer comments.
