My last bog post drew attention to the Drawing Issue Status in Advance Steel. On install this is a list of 5 states: Not Set, Revised, Comment, Approved, Rejected. Now with AS2017 you can add your own custom statuses to this list. This is done using the Object Property Editor in Management Tools. Simply select any existing entry under Approval Status and click new then fill in your desired name and colour.
To go with the Approval Status there is also a property for each document called Approval Comment. You can set this by right clicking on a drawing file name in Document Manager and selecting Approval Comment.
Both the Approval Status and Approval Comment can be shown in the drawing title block if desired. You will need to edit the title block in your prototypes to include the following tokens as desired: APPROVAL_STATUS, APPROVAL_COMMENT, APPROVAL_DATE. An example is shown in the image below.
