Custom Status Names for Tasks/Issues: Edit link not surfacing upon Hover


Level 6

I'm creating a set of custom Request/Issue Statuses for a new group.

Can any other administrator duplicate this (the missing Edit link?) The Edit link *does* appear when I mouse over Project Statuses, just not Tasks or Issues. I was successful at renaming the default Project Statuses, but unable to do the same for Issues.

Per the documentation, an Edit link should appear as you mouse over each status like in the image below. However, for Tasks and Issues, that Edit link isn't coming up.

I figured it out. You have to first edit the status under "System Statuses" as the Group and uncheck the box that says "Lock for all groups". Thanks.
