Pending Tasks

Based on the configuration settings defined in an offer, multiple signatories may have to sign the order to process the order data. If an order is submitted for processing without obtaining the required signatures, EBICS Client does not process the order. Notifications for pending signatures are sent to the mailboxes of the concerned signatories requesting them to sign to the order. If the order is pending and needs to be signed, the user who is a signatory, sees the Sign link. If all the required signatures are obtained and the order is ready to be submitted, the user who is a submitter, sees the Submit link.
