Allow Editors to Select Which Reviewers To Invite Simultaneously

Currenlty, ScholarOne only has 2 options for inviting reviewers on the Reviewer List, one at a time or all of them. In cases where a reviewer who declined or was non-responsive is re-added to the Reviewer List in error, editors have to choose between spending extra time inviting each new reviewer or spam previously declined reviewers via the "Invite All" option.


It would be very helpful to editors in terms of saving time and not spamming reviewers if editors could select multiple specific reviewers to simultaneously invite.

    I agree with Ritika's comment - in some of our journals, the Administrator invites some reviewers from a list suggested by the handling Editor, and it's really time consuming on a big journal to invite each one individually. It would be fantastic if we could select some and then invite all the selected ones in one go.

    Can there be checkboxes beneath the numbers in the reviewers list so that only those reviewers will be invited those are checked by AE or admin.
