Workfront recommends you modify existing issue statues in your system before you start creating new statuses. This helps limit the number of statuses that need to be maintained.
Group administrators can create and customize issue statuses for the groups they manage. This provides some autonomy for their group, providing them with the statuses they need to keep work moving. It also eliminates the need for a long list of system-wide statuses.
Group administrators can edit existing statuses if the system administrator has configured them to allow customization.
System administrators can manage statuses for groups by selecting the group name in the upper-right corner of the Statuses window.
Group administrators can click into the Groups section in the Setup area, open their group by clicking the name, and then selecting Statuses in the left panel menu. Be sure to select the Issues tab.
