Suggestion for pop-up message in contributor application in Planning Analytics

As we are aware, in contributor application, when a user submits data in the lowest level node(zero), it gets populated by respective node contributor and submitted for further approval by reviewer (one level above). If the reviewer thinks the data submitted is not correct or needs further modification, they reject the node (as once a node is submitted it gets locked and becomes read only till rejected and open for input). If the data looks fine, it is approved by reviewer for next level of approval. In a nutshell contributor application, planning follows Approval/Rejection process.
When reviewer clicks on the 'Reject' button, the pop-up message states, 'Are you sure you want to reject (node name)?'
This pop-up message seems to be perceived by the users as if this option will reject the changes made and all their submitted changes will be lost. Therefore, there is suggestion if the pop-up message could be modified to something like "
Do you want to unlock (node name)?".
