This post has been closed as a duplicate. All votes have been moved to the original: Statuses don't have to be locked system wide to appear on a specific team's agile board

It would be helpful to be able to create custom statuses in the Agile side, like you can on the Waterfall side.

Upvoted 100000000%! Having to only use system statuses is a real deal-breaker for the Agile tools in Workfront especially Kanban.

Totally agree. Very limiting. Each groups should be able to have its own custom agile statuses. Doesn't make any sense that this would limited. Frustrating that there's no apparent reason to have it this way.

This is a HUGE need. Let's promote this in the community. A big part of agile development is the ability to have custom workflows (statuses in Workfront). Not having this is a major showstopper for our use case.

There is apparently a Workaround for this that is absolutely NOT for the faint of heart. This idea is exactly the same as another one that's been promoted a while ago and in that post there is a workaround given in the comment section:

Please if you've upvoted here, upvote there as well.

This is huge for us. Not being able to use custom status is considered a significant limitation and prevents widespread adaption of Agile in Workfront.

Totally agree. If we are going to keep our agile teams in Workfront vs wanting to change over to JIRA, this needs to happen pretty quick.
