Close a Submittal

You can close a submittal to indicate that it is no longer needed on the project by going to Projects > Submittals > More > Close.

You might close a submittal when the project design is changed and a spec is voided. Once the submittal is closed, its visibility is automatically updated to visible, allowing the project team to see it. A project editor can change the visibility back to private, if needed, and also Reopen a Submittal.
Note: The names of the fields, actions, and states for submittals may be different in your instance of Viewpoint Team, because they can be customized by the system administrator. For example, your organization might use "Grant" instead of "Issue". In this case, you would click the Grant button to send the submittal to the submitter and the state would change from Draft to Granted.
