Create Action Plan Statuses


To create action plan statuses for use in the project's Action Plans tool.


Action Plan statuses provide visibility into the status of an action plan. By default, there are three statuses:

  • Draft
  • In Progress
  • Closed

You can create additional statuses to provide granular visibility of action plans that are 'In Progress' or 'Closed'. Statuses can be created using the steps below.

    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Admin tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Statuses can be mapped to 'In Progress' or 'Closed'.

    • Statuses can be assigned to specific Action Plan Types. See Create Action Plan Types.
    • A status cannot be deleted if the status is currently applied to an action plan.
