Statuses for Folders

By default, Folders inherit the statuses of their parent Spaces. You can set unique statuses for your Folders if you need to differentiate your workflow statuses for your Folders.

What you'll need

Edit Folder statuses

To create unique Folder statuses:

  1. In the left Sidebar, hover over the Folder you want to edit.
  2. Click the ellipsis ... icon.
  3. Click Folder settings.
  4. Select List statuses.
  5. In the status modal, click Custom.
  6. Use the existing statuses or click +Add Status to create your own.
  7. Click Save.

You can also edit Folder statuses in Task view by selecting the gear icon in the status dropdown menu.

Conflicting statuses

If you move a task to a Folder that doesn't have the same statuses, you'll see a modal to convert your old task statuses to the new Folder's statuses. To convert them, select the new status for your task and click Done.
