    I would dream of having this availability lol.


    We are a design/build firm so it makes reporting essentially non-useful for me.

    We have projects that are in Conceptual Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Pre-Construction, and Construction.  We set up folders so people would move projects to let us know the status but no one moves them, so it doesnt work out well.  


    But if the status feature could be customized and linked to reporting that would be huge

    Hey Shawn and Ivan,

    There's a thread already for custom project statuses here: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115003092949--Status-Coming-Soon-Customising-Project-status. According to the tag, it will be available soon.

    Ivan — The workaround for us right now is a custom field in the table that has drop downs identical to our tasks, but also allows text entry. It's another step for us to fill just so reports can show. It's not ideal, but it helps the report.

    Shawn those status ideas are brilliant.  That would help us tremendously.  However, I guess I will wait on this as if the feature is coming out soon I would rather just implement once in the permanent setup
