Account Settings - Statuses
In this article
Statuses can be customized by name and color and organized into custom workflows. Issue statuses, equipment statuses, checklist statuses, and test statuses are all set in the same manner.
In a new account, the statuses will be set to the application defaults. You may edit or delete these defaults, or add new statuses of your own.
Adding a Status
- Click the Add New button in the upper right corner.
- Enter a status name and select a color from the list.
- Click Save.
Editing a Status
- Click the Edit button to the right of the status row.
- Change the status name and/or color.
- Click Save.
You can also control the order in which the statuses appear in an issue, equipment, checklist, or test by reordering the statuses here. Statuses that can be dragged are indicated by three bars at the left of the status row. To move a status, click on a status with the three bars and drag it to its new position in the status list.
Anyone with the Respond permission for a given section (issues, checklists, tests, equipment) can change the status of an item within that section, but there may be times when you want to restrict certain statuses, such as Closed or Completed.
At the right side of each status row is an option for Permissions. From there, you can limit access to specific statuses. By default, new statuses are set to All Responders.
