Hi Sbuchan:

When you corrected the document did you complete the process by clicking on ‘send’ (or ‘finish’ - I can’t recall what the last box is called)? If you don’t complete this step the envelope can’t move out of ‘correcting’ status. 

Basically, you need to makes your changes then resend the document (and you can only make changes before the recipient signs - once a document is signed you can’t change anything).

good luck

Hi @sbuchan,


Welcome to the Docusign Community!


We are glad to have you here and can't wait to help share as much knowledge as possible.


I am sorry to hear that you haven’t been able to get your envelope out of the correcting status, but I will share the steps to correct this issue.


In order to trigger the envelope’s status to change, you will need to start a new correction in Agreements> Sent> Correct, and click “Correct” or “Discard Changes” at the end of the process.
