Incorrect grammar and missing option on deposit form; does not match specs

Project:RUcore Workflow Management System (WMS)

Description

On the deposit form, when the author checks 'Article' or 'Conference Paper or Lecture' or 'Review,' they are asked this question (see attached screenshot):

Did you submit any earlier version(s) of this review to SOAR?

I appreciate that the question and answer options are more concise than what was proposed in the specs, however, the original content was not preserved and there are two problems:

1) The author could choose to submit an earlier version. If that were the case, neither of the options would be correct and the author could not continue through the form without checking something that wasn't true.
2) The second option uses incorrect grammar. Please change to "No, this is the first time I have submitted this article"

or revisit both question and answers, since the original meaning found in the specs has been lost.

So should there be three options then?

1) Yes, and I am submitting a newer version today
2) Yes, and I am submitting a older version today
3) No, this is the first time I have submitted this article

#2

Basically yes, but I would change the order to put most common first & least common last, i.e.:

1) No, this is the first time I have submitted this article
2) Yes, and I am submitting a newer version today
3) Yes, and I am submitting an older version today

I would recommend even cutting the first answer back to a simple "No" since they've just read the question, "Did you submit any earlier version(s) of this _____ to SOAR?"

1) No
2) Yes, and I am submitting a newer version today
3) Yes, and I am submitting an older version today

In answer 3, if copying and pasting from your earlier post, please change "a older" to "an older"

Thank you!

1) No
2) Yes, and I am submitting a newer version today
3) Yes, and I am submitting an older version today

Option 3 is asking to overwrite the old version, FD is not ready to do that yet. This item is a feature request.

I can change the wording for the other two. Please update.

#6

Please go ahead and fix the wording. I will add item 3 as a new feature request.

#7

Status:active» test

Fixed it on dev, test during test period.

#8

Status:test» fixed

These are the options now:
No
Yes, and I am submitting a newer version today

We're not implementing the third option as it requires more work and is a new feature request.
