Deleting an active document

Deleting an active document

Leegality allows a user to delete an active document i.e. Active document(s) are those that have active sign/reviewer invitations from the dashboard. 


Deleting an active document (that has pending invitees) will revoke the invitee’s access to their signing/reviewer rights and will make the signer/reviewer URL inaccessible.


Note: Invitations that have already been signed will remain as is on the document and the deletion only affects un-actioned invitations.

2.  Click on the “Actions” drop-down for the concerned document and then click on ‘Delete’ to delete the document from your dashboard and revoke and un-actioned invitations for the document.
