Automatically un-invite open reviews at decision

It would be very useful if an e-mail would trigger at decision to notify any reviewers with pending invitations that their review is no longer needed. Currently, reviewers are only notified if they have AGREED to review the paper but not yet submitted the comments. This means that when other reviewers that were invited try to click the link to respond, it no longer allows them to do so. The current workarounds or alternatives to this are 1) to close out any pending invites at the same time a decision is executed, or 2) to wait for the auto-decline e-mail to trigger and close out those open invitations. Both are feasible options, but having an automated notification e-mail to invited reviewers, similar to the ?no longer needed? message to agreed reviewers, would be far preferable. Editorial Manager currently has this functionality.
