Common App: Already submitted apps, will transcript & rec. letters catch up?

I submitted my applications via Common App a few days ago without the transcript and letters of rec. included (my high school won't release them until the end of September). Once the transcript and letters of rec. are released by my high school to Common App, will I have to do anything to trigger them being sent to the schools I've applied to, or does that happen automatically. I hope this question makes sense.

If you have already paid the app fee and pressed submit, you will not have to do anything. As soon as your school receives them they should be updated in your applicant portal on the school website.
