Allow Fields to be Changed After Submission

Once a document is submitted, fields are frozen, and no editing is allowed. However, there are certain standard fields like Letter Head, Print Heading which can still be edited. If Allow on Submit property is checked, the field will be editable even after the document is submitted.

Here is an example. In 'Sales Invoice' DocType, 'Letter Head' field can be edited even after submitting the sales invoice.
