What does Archiving a document mean? ("Ready to Sign / Release" button)

When you Archive a DOC item by clicking on "Ready to Sign / Release" button in a DOC item, a SIGN item is generated.

This SIGN item contains the same content as the DOC item at that time. It is a snapshot of the DOC item at the time of archiving.

A SIGN item can be signed off. The content of the SIGN item (except the electronic signatures) cannot be changed anymore.

Archiving is restricted to DOC items.
