Change the default workflow to a status already established.

I established a number of projects with a manual workflow status choice of "In queue".  Now that I am adding some additional tasks, I have noticed that those tasks are setting up automatically with "Designer Queue" which is my first status instead of "In Queue" which I would like to be able to move to my default status.  I don't want to change any of the tasks already set up as "In Queue" by deleting or renaming statuses as that loses my flexibility in making changes.  

I can move "In queue" up to the second from the default but not make it the default.  How can I fix this without losing flexibility in changing names or automatic adjustments?

HI Kristy Schaan
The default task status cannot be deleted, but you can rename it.

I advise you to rename it and swap it with the other one =)

Thanks Pietro,

So, if I’m understanding this correctly, this will fix the 4 or so tasks that have the wrong name, correct?

 I probably have hundreds of tasks with the In Queue that I want to be the default.  Will they stay the same even if I delete that secondary status or will I need to keep two of the same status in order to avoid fixing the hundreds of other tasks that I have as In Queue?

Some troubleshooting might be a good thing to include in your informational items as it is possible to inadvertently get in trouble with this one when developing projects for the first time.

Hi Kristy Schaan, it will be necessary to update the tasks' statuses to make sure there will be no issues after the change. Luckily, you can mass edit the tasks' status in the Table view:

I hope this information helps!

And as usual, thank you Pietro Poli!
