The document sender can delete the documents in any status and send it to the recycle bin where the deleted documents will be permanently removed from the Foxit eSign aka eSign Genie system after 14 days automatically unless moved/recovered prior to 14 days time period.
Documents can be permanently deleted anytime manually from the recycle bin prior to completion of 14 days of automated deletion cycle. This functionality works just like the most email services.
