A typical scenario is the following: you complete an Engineering Change Notification (ECN) form which then needs sequential review and approval by multiple persons. Using FormDocs forms routing feature, you create a 'routing slip' which will automatically send the form to your list of recipients in the order you specify; upon reviewing the form, each recipient has the option to indicate their approval by digitally signing it and then 'routing' it on to the next person or, they can return it to the sender for requested corrections or additions.
