The Submission Status is used to indicate where in the Workflow a submission is.
A submission could have a Submission Status of Draft.
A submission could have a Submission Status of Review.
The Submission Status is used to control the behaviour of the submission including:
|Which form to use when editing a submission|
|Which form to use when reviewing a submission|
|Validation to apply to fields in the submission|
|Emails to be sent out to users|
The Submission Status can be one of three types:
|Edit||The submission can be edited by the submitter|
|Review||The submission is under review and cannot be edited by the submitter.|
|Finished||The submission is no longer being processed and cannot be edited by the submitter.|
Each type of Submission Status has a number of Sub Statuses that are used to provide additional information about the status of the submission.
Sub Statuses are automatically worked out by the system
Any statuses of type Edit indicate that the submitter is allowed to edit the submission.
|Incomplete||The submission has not had all of its mandatory fields answered.|
|Complete||The submission has had all of its mandatory fields answered.|
Any statuses of type Review indicate that the submission is under review and cannot be edited by the submitter.
|Unassigned||The submission has not been assigned to any reviewers.|
|Assigned||The submission has been assigned to at least one reviewer but no reviewers have completed their reviews.|
|Started||At least one reviewer has completed their review of the submission.|
|Complete||All reviews for the submission have been completed.|
Any statuses of type Finished indicate that the submission has completed its process and no further action is required. Submitters cannot edit submissions that are in a Finished status.
A Finished status does not have any sub-statuses.
Each Status and Sub-Status can have a number of settings applied to it to control behaviour.
These settings can be edited using the Workflow Editor.
