Send Message to creator without needing to 'unreview'/'re-review' the article
Open, NormalPublic


Value proposition

Currently the Send message for the creator and the Mark as reviewed processes are intertwined. A reviewer can only send a message to the creator if the page is not already reviewed. And the button to send message to creator also acts as a mark as reviewed button. These two workflows should be separated because often reviewers need to send a message to the creator without marking the page as reviewed (such as when it's still under review).


  • When user hits Mark as reviewed, that only marks the page as reviewed and does not send message to creator.
  • Add a new button Send message to creator which sends a message to the page creator if there is text present in the textarea. The button is disabled if there is no text.
  • Position the elements according the mockup above (with a horizontal separator between the two different steps.
  • The checkmark on the tab turns green only if the page has been marked as reviewed (no relation to whether a message was sent to creator).
