Document statuses

SigningHub allows documents sharing in the form of a documents package. A package may contain multiple files. In this way they are collectively shared as a bundle, by consuming a single workflow from your available quota.
A documents package can have the following statuses in a workflow:

 Document Statuses
Icon Status Description

Draft A document package that is uploaded and being prepared by the document owner is called a 'Draft' document. The draft document is editable for the document owner, who can add recipients (signers, reviewers, editors) in it, and can make certain workflow configurations. The 'Draft' document is shown to the respective document owner only. 
A document package remains in the 'Draft' status, until it is sent for collaboration.
In Progress A document owner when sends their document package for signing/ reviewing/ updating, sees the shared document as 'In Progress' in their documents list. An in-progress document is shown to the respective document owner only, in un-editable form. However, the document owner can still recall it and can change its recipients and their permissions. 
A document package remains in the 'In Progress' status, until it is signed/ reviewed/ updated by all the recipients.
Pending A recipient when receives a document package for signing/ reviewing/ updating, sees the received document as 'Pending' in their documents list. A pending document is shown to the respective recipient only, with the configured (security) settings. When allowed in the document permissions (by the document owner), the recipient can replace himself with other recipient. 
A document package remains in the 'Pending' status, until it is signed/ reviewed/ updated by the respective recipient. 
  Signed A document package that has been sent to a recipient (signer), and has been signed by the signer is called a 'Signed' document. Or
A document package that has been sent to a recipient (meeting host), and received all the in-person signatures from the in-person signers by the meeting host is called a 'Signed' document.

The signed document is shown to the respective signer/ meeting host only.
  Approved A document package that has been sent to a recipient (reviewer), and has been reviewed by the reviewer is called an 'Approved' document. The approved document is shown to the respective reviewer only. This filter will automatically appear when there is any such document in your documents list.
Updated A document package that has been sent to a recipient (editor), and has been submitted by the editor with filled form and/ or initials, is called an 'Updated' document. The updated document is shown to the respective editor only. This filter will automatically appear when there is any such document in your documents list.
Completed A document package that has been signed/ reviewed/ updated by all the recipients in the workflow, is called a 'Completed' document. The completed document is shown to the respective document owner only.
  Declined A document package that has been sent to a recipient for signing/ reviewing/ updating, and has been declined by the recipient is called a 'Declined' document. The declined document is shown to the respective recipient and document owner only.
