Status templates

You can save and reuse statuses in Folders, Lists, and Spaces throughout your entire Workspace.

You can create new status templates in three instances:

  • When creating a new Folder, Space or List.

  • When editing your statuses within an existing Folder or Space.

  • When editing a List.

Once you are viewing a Space, Folder, or List’s status settings, you'll be able to view the current status templates available to you. You can also create custom statuses.

What you'll need

  • Status templates are available on every ClickUp Plan.

  • Guests cannot edit statuses or use status templates.

Edit status templates

When you update an existing status template, the changes will only apply to the List, Folder, or Space where you are making changes. Other locations that use the same status template will no longer use the status template. They will keep their current statuses which will be labeled Custom.

 

To edit an existing status template:

  1. In the Sidebar, hover over the Space, Folder, or List.

  2. Click the ellipsis ... icon.

  3. Select Space, Folder, or List Settings.

  4. Click List statuses or Task statuses to open the statuses modal.

  5. Under Status template, use the dropdown menu to select a template.
