When the document has been processed by sending the job to a printer outside the Skyline environment or when a job is completed, the status of the job order needs to be updated.

It is good practice to follow the normal work flow when changing the status of a job order. If you do change the status when a document has not been printed from Skyline you will be asked to enter the details of where the document was printed.
