Status label tips

  • Each status is a subcategory of three main categories: Planned, In Progress, or Completed
  • Text labels are limited to 64 characters.
  • Hover over a label and use the up and down arrows to reorder the status list.
  • If you edit a work status label, the change will show on all items using the label. 
  • If you delete a label, items using that label remain unchanged; only the status label is deleted.
