From the ••• menu, for each created request you can:

  • View responses to open a dialogue displaying all requested readers of the document, their confirmation status, and confirmation date if they have already confirmed.

  • View details to display more details for the request like when it was requested, which version of the document was defined, and the message.

  • Close request to close the request for all readers.

  • Delete request to delete the request for all readers.

Manage responses

From the Manage response screen and your version history table, you can overview a list of response details of readers that you added to the read request. You can also add new readers to the request.
