You can Change the Task Status from List View.
1. Log into your account and select the project.
2. Locate the task you need to edit. Click on the '...' icon on the left under 'Actions' column, and select 'Edit Task'.
3. In the task window, click the drop down for the 'Task Status'. This will provide four options; New, In Progress, Complete and Flagged. Select the appropriate setting and click Save at the bottom. This setting is for the overall status of a task at the project level.
Difference between Task Status and My Task Status
In My Street when you open a task you see an additional field called My Task Status. This field reflects what the individual user has done with a task, while Task Status represents the status based on actions of all resources assigned. To better understand this difference, consider the chart below defining the four Task Status variables:
New = no work done by any assigned resource for the task
In Progress = work has started by AT LEAST ONE resource assigned to the task
Complete= work completed by ALL resources assigned to the task.
Flagged= AT LEAST ONE resource has flagged the task.
For example, assume a task has been assigned to worker1, worker2 and worker3. In the List View for the project the status will display as NEW. In My Street, for each worker, the Task Status will display as NEW and the My Task Status will display as To DO.
Once any worker moves the task from their To Do column to their In Progress column, the status will update to In Progress at the project level in the List View. In My Street, for the worker that moved the task the Task Status will show In Progress and the My Task Status will show In Progress. For the other workers assigned to the task the Task Status will show In Progress and the My Task Status will remain as To DO if they have not moved the task to their individual In Progress column.
If the Task Status is changed in the List View, then the Task Status and My Task Status will update for all resources. For example, if the Task Status is changed to Complete in the List View, then the task will move to Done within the My Street view, the Task Status will list Complete and the My Task Status will show Approved.
