Calendar reminders for reviewers

It would be really useful if the system were able to incorporate a 'calendar reminder' functionality whereby when a reviewer accepted an invitation to review a manuscript, an email is sent to them to ask them if they wanted to put a reminder in their calendar for when the task is due. This would certainly be  helpful to reviewers and may serve to reduce the journal's response times if reviewers actually submitted their reports on time.

    I'd like to follow-up this matter. Is there any news with this feature?

    Absolutely, this would be a great benefit. I think many reviewers are late with reviews because they forget they have them - anything that simplifies task tracking for our reviewers can make a big difference. This seems to be a fairly straightforward software feature that can be added with huge potential upside for some journals. Please include this!

    Appreciate the suggestions here. We are reviewing this suggestion but have no concrete plans, at this time, to add this to the product.

    This would be a good idea!  We manage other journals on Aries Editorial Manager and this has helped the reviewers immensely-Scholar 1 - with 195 votes to implement - the competition has implemented this already....
