Renaming / Re-colouring Atlas Goal Statuses

Kasey Dionne April 13, 2023

Hi there, 

 

I'm wondering if there is a way to rename and/or re-colour Atlas goal statuses. We would to re-colour 'Completed' to differentiate it from 'Paused' and 'Pending', and we'd also like to tweak the names of the other statuses. Does this functionality exist?

 

Thanks for your help, 

Kasey

Hi @Kasey Dionne - thanks for the question. Currently it's not possible to change the colour or names of the statuses, unfortunately. But we have heard this feedback before. I've captured your feedback in our JPD idea backlog.

May I ask what you'd tweak the names of the other statuses to?

Thanks
Josh

Hi Josh, 

Thanks for your quick response!

We wouldn't input goals into the tool until they'd been confirmed, so we would ideally change 'Pending' to something like 'Committed' or 'Not Started'. This would make it clear that we are going to work on the goal, it just hasn't been started yet. 

Another status that would be handy is 'Deferred', to differentiate items that we planned to do in one quarter but had to be pushed out. 

Thanks, 

Kasey

We would really like to use Atlas for some exec summary on projects but the PMO is using PMI standard statuses like 'Initiating' 'Planning' 'Executing' and 'Closing'.   How can we share these statuses in Atlas?

Hi @Darryl_calder ,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We are currently working on supporting custom fields for Project and Goals, which you can then filter them by. Sounds like this might help in your case. Keen to understand your use-case a little more,  which other tools are you using these PMI statuses in already?

Hi @Anish Deena We are implementing a 'PMO Program' project in Jira that we will use to delineate when we are planning vs executing a project.  Each IT Project in our organization will have its own PMO Epic and we will assign tasks to each of the PMI phases to call out our phase dates

Agree.  Completed is a terminal state, paused and pending are not so a different color for completion versus not-completed is important.
