Tip: Instead of always completing the task when clicking on the status icon, you can change the settings in the Project Settings to always show the status options.

Note:

  • The progress percentage below 100% (not including 100%) can’t be the same as the ones that already existed.
  • However, you can create multiple statuses for the progress 100%. For example, you can name the statuses as Canceled or Won’t do, etc. If you filter by Active Tasks in the List view, the tasks applied with these statuses will be hidden as well.
