• Add/Edit Issue Status

    Once you have created an issue type, you need to fill it with statuses.

    To do this, click the "Add Status" link next to the type you want the status to be part of. You will be presented with a form like this:

    • Title - the title of the status you want to add. HTML is not recommended.
    • Issue Type - this simply tells you the issue type the status is going to be in. Statuses cannot be moved to different types.
    • Display Order - sorting order for this status. Lower numbers are displayed first.
    • Can Create Petitions from this Status? - determines whether users can create a petition for an issue when it is in this status. Common cases where you'd want to prevent users from creating petitions is when the issue hasn't been looked at yet (such as in the starting state) or when the decision is final.
