Release All Submitted
The Tools screen now has a couple new options for the management rep to release documents in a batch. This was developed for a company who needed to migrate a lot of existing documents that had already been reviewed and approved in their paper based quality management system, but needed to be in The Lean Machine for an upcoming audit that was only weeks away.
With these tools the management rep can move all draft documents into the approval stage, then with a single signature release all of the documents that have been submitted for approval. Any documents that have comments will need to be release manually, as the comment will need to be reviewed to determine if it will have an impact on the decision to release that document.
This feature allowed them to get all their documents released in The Lean Machine in time for their audit, which they passed with flying colors giving the Quality Manager that “hero of the day” experience at work.
