This will take you to Channel Settings.

Create New

This will take you to the create form.


The reorder icon in the left-most column of the table allows you to reorder the statuses by dragging and dropping the rows.


The icons in the manage column perform actions on the status in its row.


This will take you to the status’s edit form.

Bulk Actions

The checkbox in the right-most column of the table selects a button for a bulk action. When at least one checkbox is checked the bulk action dropdown menu and submit button will be made available in the lower righthand corner of the table.


The selected statuses will be removed. Removing a status will cause a confirmation modal to appear that will summarize the action.
