This feature provides a possibility to assign statuses to your projects and see at a glance at what stage they are.
By default, there is a No status option 1 that cannot be deleted and 3 statuses: green = on track 2, yellow = at risk 3, red = off track 4.
The possibility to change project status is linked to the user’s project rights. An Account Owner, Account Admins, and Enterprise users with a Custom role and corresponding permission can change project status.
To do that, open the project, click on the corresponding sign to the right of its name and choose the required status from the drop-down menu.
It is possible to see the status of all active and archived projects in the All projects tab, or for any particular project once you open it.
Note: Project portfolios do not have any statuses.
The possibility to create, edit and delete project status is linked to the user’s Account role. An Account Owner, Account Admins, and Enterprise users with a Custom role and corresponding permission can do this.
For that, go to the Account settings 1, and select Project status 2. There you can:
3 Change status color
4 Change status name
5 Create as many new statuses as you need
6 Change the order the statuses will be shown in a drop-down menu by using drag and drop
7 Delete status
Note that you can delete any status except for the default one “No status”. This one is automatically assigned to any project when its status is undefined or has been deleted.
