Record Status & Workflow
An audit can have the following status:
Open: After you add a new audit record, its status is automatically set to open. If it is reopened, its status will be back to open.
Waiting for approval: Once the evaluation is completed, you can choose the option Send for approval in the workflow menu. The status will then be changed for Waiting for approval.
Approved: Audit should be approved by managers. Once the user has selected the option Approve in the workflow menu, the audit is considered as approve and cannot be edited.
The following figure shows how one status flows into the next.
Changes to the status are recorded in the action history table.
