How can we make sure that reviewer names are hidden from authors?

Is there a specific option to keep reviewer names hidden from authors?

As per default, reviewers' names are never visible to authors.

However, if an author is also administrator or chair in ConfTool, this user has always access to details as a member of the organizing team.
Therefore, this user will able to see the names of reviewers, as it is an inherent part of his or her user status.

You can also activate an open review process in which the reviewers' names can additionally be displayed to the authors.
