Can authors see the names of the reviewers?

The reviewers’ names are not revealed to the authors.

However, if the author is also ConfTool Admin or Chair, the user has access to the reviewer names (as these persons have access to all reviewers anyway).

You can test it if you log in as a "normal" author (go to the list of users and click on "Login as...")

Exception: If you use the “Open Review” setting of ConfTool Pro, you can optionally display the reviewers' names to the authors (if required), but for the open review process all submissions and reviews are open to the public anyway.

To enable the open review process, go to
Overview => Settings => Main Setting for Paper Reviewing

and enable the "Expert Settings" in the footer bar.
