App Status

 

In the My Applications page, you can view the current state and sub-state of your app and take actions based on this status.

Applications_MyApplications_InfoStatus.png

 

There are three major states: Registration, Validation, and Sale. The current sub-state of an app appears below one of the major state columns in the table.

A history of status changes can be viewed by clicking on the date under the Last Updated column.

You can review app information at any time by clicking on the sub-state of the app. In most cases, you can only view the app information. But, in some cases, you may be able to update the app information (for example, when you click on the Registering sub-state of an app) . If you want to update an app in the Sale state, use the Update button.
