User-based Status Privileges

Would it be possible to allow certain workflow statuses selections based on the user/collaborators user identity, group or role?

For example: "Workflow 01" has a status, "Approved 01," that only specific users can select.

Thanks a lot for posting your suggestion here Andrew Goddard! Could you share more detail on your use case on why you'd need this functionality?

We use tasks and projects as collaborative environment for individuals and groups, each party performing a function after another user or group's action. Allowing only specified individuals or groups to change a task or project's status to certain statuses would help keep the parties in their own respective lane.

Another example: Someone changes that task status to "Please Proofread". From that point, a proofreader might be one of the task's assignees who has the ability to set the status to "Proofreading finished".

Thank you for the detailed reply Andrew Goddard! I can definitely see how this would be useful! For now, I would suggest exploring Access Roles if you haven't yet and limit a user's ability to change statuses in certain folders, projects, or spaces. Another solution would be to use fixed workflow transitions and auto-assigning tasks based on Workflow status. Could you tell me if you've tried using these options?

Thank you Lisa for that feedback. I am aware and employ or have employed each of those features but I believe they're not as flexible as what I am proposing.
