Status options for projects

Hi everyone,

 

I was wondering if someone could tell me if it is possible to customize the status options for projects as is the case for tasks? If yes can you tell me how?

 

Thank you!

It's not exactly the same as projects, but I believe there are two ways.  I would love to hear more ideas.  

First, you can create a few folders like the following image.  Remember, a task can be in more than one folder.  So while it might be housed in a folder titled "Campaign" - it can also be housed in a folder called "On Hold" 

So, for example.  Here are two tasks I have, one is "on hold"

In my opinion, the best way to do this is with Custom Workflows.  Here is an few examples my team uses: 

Both of these awesome features can be built into dashboards:

Hi Emmanuelle, Patrick is right (you're a rockstar Patrick!). You can't have Custom Statuses directly at the Project level, but Rob requested that feature. If you could +1 that request that would help our Product team know how many people are interested in the feature.

@Patrick: thank you for your tips. That is indeed a good workaround. 

@Stephanie: Done :)

Hi 

I am new to wrike and also need to change the status options. Not sure if there has been much movement in this over the past 5 years since this discussion started?
