Manage approval statuses for drawings

You can create, modify, or delete approval statuses for drawings in the Approval Status dialog box.

To access the Approval Status dialog box, do the following:

  1. Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, select Production Control > Approval Status Maintenance.

You can also access Approval Status from Maintenance > Project Management.

The Approval Status dialog box opens. You can view all existing approval statuses.

If you create new approval statuses, the only available purpose options are Approved and Hold.

Approved means that drawings are ready for fabrication. The Approved purpose is used as the status link in the project schedule.

Hold means that the drawings are not ready for fabrication. Items with the Hold option can move through fabrication processes, but they will be highlighted in red, and warning pop ups will appear during processing updates. Any loads that contain items with the Hold purpose option cannot be shipped.
