Traveler Object States
The Traveler Object Status Attribute can have the following states:
When Travelers are
created they start in the Pending State. Note: Operators
can not create Travelers in a Pending state, only users with Supervisor rights can
At the moment a traveler is submitted from the Pending state it will move into the
Active state. Only in the Active state Part Records
can be added to a Traveler. This normally happens during the first step. Active
Travelers are always connected to a Step
When Travelers complete the last Step the state automatically changes from 'Active'
to 'Closed'. The Part Records remain
connected to the Traveler until they are picked up by an other Traveler or are Shipped.
On the Print Preview
When the Traveler is in the Pending State or in the Active State while there are
no parts connected to it, the Traveler can be deleted. This will move the Traveler
to the Deleted State.
