New issue 1691 by ericbrandon: "Archive" reviews to hide from dashboard
[What version are you running?] 1.0.7
[What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any?] Dashboard
[Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.]
Individual reviewers should be able to "archive" reviews after finishing
with them. Once a reviewer archives a review, the review should disappear
from the reviewer's dashboard until there is a further change to the review
(e.g., new comment, diff, etc.).
The idea is very similar to the archive feature in Gmail. There, once a
conversation is archived, it disappears from a user's inbox until there's a
new email on the thread.
The motivation is usability. Currently, reviews disappear from a user's
dashboard only when the submitter has decided to mark the review as
submitted (or discarded). There is a particular problem when submitters
forget to mark a review as submitted; currently, the only solution is to
nag the submitter.
The current approach seems backwards: it should be up to a reviewer to
control what reviews show up on his/her dashboard.
