Closed submittals sometimes need to be reopenned

Submittals get closed but sometimes because ofspecification changes, user errors, submitter omissions the submittal needs to be reopened. This is not allowed currently.

    SM Wilson asked about this as well, they need the flexibility to open a closed submittal in the case of a mistake, etc. Once a submittal number is used we can't reuse it, so the process is pretty rigid at this point.

    I have ran into this a couple of times as well. The Engineer recently sent the submittals back as approved but they were really revise and resubmit. I had no way to change that at this point and the only option that was available to me was to Release. After that I could not reopen to create a revision. Could a Submittal be reopened to create a resubmittal? That would allow some flexibility if error occurred on the process. That way the number is not being used again, simply a revision.
