Certain signings may not require documents to be uploaded to the order (e.g., In office signings). You can adjust the External Documents setting on a signing product so that the document status is updated automatically after a notary is assigned. This way you do not have to manually update the document status on the order.
Note: Even if you have this setting turned on for a product, you are still able to upload documents to an order.
To turn on the External Documents setting and see how it will appear to you and the notary, see below.
