GreenHopper is now called JIRA Agile. Learn more.
This tutorial only applies if you are not using Simplified Workflow. If you are using Simplified Workflow, then you can simply use the 'Add Column' button and a corresponding new status will be created automatically.
This tutorial will walk you through the process of adding a new column to your board, and adding a corresponding JIRA status to your JIRA workflow.
For the purposes of this tutorial, we will add a column (and status) called 'Quality Testing' — but of course you can substitute this for whatever you need.
On this page:
"In the 'Unmapped Statuses' column at the left of the screen, locate the 'Quality Testing' status and drag it to your new 'Quality Testing' column."
I never see my unmapped statuses in the column at the left of the screen.
