Custom Statuses

Create custom statuses based on the way your team works. Add custom statuses that describe the unique stages of your team’s workflow. Apply these statuses to your projects and always know where any project is – in real-time.


Create a New Custom Statuses

To manage your project statuses go to Calendar Settings >Statuses.

To create a new Custom Status, click Add Custom Status.

When creating a new Custom Status, add a name for the status, then choose a status-type.

There are three different status-types: Draft, Scheduled, and Published.

  • Draft Status Type: Draft status types will not reach a “published” state. They will stay in a “Draft” state and will have a yellow highlight on the calendar.
  • Scheduled Status Type: Scheduled status types have an ending status. When the scheduled date is reached, it will be switched to a “published” state.
  • Published Status Type: Published status types are the ending status for Scheduled Status Types.

If you have multiple Published-type statuses, you will need to clarify which Published status each Scheduled status connects to.
