Issue Multiple Submittals

You can issue multiple submittals at once to send them to the person who will supply the materials or perform the work outlined in the submittal and start the review process for it by going to Projects > Submittals > Actions > Issue. This is the first step in the submittal process.

You must add a submittal before you can issue it. See Add a Submittal.
By issuing the submittal, you are indicating that it is now ready for the submitter to complete. When you issue multiple submittals at one time, they all have the same submitter. If you need to issue submittals to different submitters, you have to issue them separately.

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.
