RSS Sessions for Previous Year

Morning!
Regarding outstanding 2022 sessions:

I receive email notifications when sessions are submitted for review/approval. I received a lot of notifications for sessions at the end of the year. When I go to the series workflow dashboard none of those sessions show up in any state: new, needs review, etc. I have an assistant helping with approvals and they don’t know there’s anything to review because the sessions aren’t listed. Do all sessions, regardless of workflow status, disappear from this dashboard in a new year?

Does anyone have a different set-up for notifications when sessions come in? I also think my assistant doesn’t receive all the email notifications when a new session is ready for review even though he is an admin member for all the series. Do you have to be the “creator” of the series in order to receive the email notifications?

Thanks!
