Why are some notifications greyed out?

You will receive notifications for documents you create or for documents that were shared with you to collaborate, approve, or eSign on. You may be unable to click on some notifications in the Notifications panel and they will be grayed out. This happens for one of the two reasons:

  • The owner deleted the document
  • You no longer have access to the document because you have been removed from its collaborator, approver, or eSigners list.
