Modify the List of Case Status Values
Case Status summarizes in general terms what has been done so far on a case, and indicates what needs to be done next. Default status values and the flow between them is described in Case States and Transitions.
This article shows you how to modify the list of Case Status values that an agent or automated procedure can choose from.
To modify the list of Case Status values:
- > Customization > Global Picklists
- Click the Case Status entry
- Click [Edit] to make changes to the list
- When done, click [Save]
The default status entries have fixed values, and can't be deleted. But you can change their labels to be anything you want. So instead of displaying, "Open", for example, you could change the status entry to display as "In Progress". You can also add new entries, and those entries can be modified in any way you like.
