Task Statuses

By default, a task can have the following statuses:

  • Open—This is a new task, or the old task which turned out to include a new piece of work that requires attention. The assignee has not started to work on the task.
  • In Progress—The task is currently in work.
  • Closed—This task is resolved or does not require any further work.

Task Flow


When the Task Flow workflow is enabled in the Oro application, this section contains transition buttons that help direct you through phases of work on the task.

Current Status Available Options New Status
