Use a released change

A Released change form often includes dispositioning instructions to your organization for managing the affected product data. For example, the change form may require documents to be distributed, parts to be purchased or reworked, serial numbers to be recorded, and processes to be changed.

If you have appropriate permissions, you can update this dispositioning information to confirm that these required activities have been performed.

When the released change's disposition activities are finished, or temporary changes - such as deviations or stop ships - expire, then the change may be promoted to completed phase.

Completing the change form (Process | Complete Change) is optional. A completed change form ensures that its dispositioning information is locked from further modifications.

A released change form can't be returned to a pre-released state. If you need to fix a released item (for example, adding a forgotten revision file), then create a new pending iteration and update the incorrect information. If appropriate, copy the previous iteration's revision and lifecycle values to the pending iteration. Release the pending iteration using a new change form, which cancels the incorrect iteration.
