How to make Handy Statuses created by me editable/viewable by others

I have a template where I added Handy statuses to be used within my template and just realized that I am the only one that can edit them. Is there a way that I can make these handy statuses viewable/editable to others?

Hi @Dailin Garcia Young ,

There are three ways to add status sets:

  • Personal status sets:
    • These sets are visible for the creator when inserting the macro and can be edited by the creator only
    • The macros are available for switching and copying for other users
  • Space status sets:
    • These sets are visible for all the users inserting the macro in the corresponding space; can be created and edited by users with space administrator's permissions
  • Global status sets:
    • These sets are visible for all the users, can be created and edited by Confluence Administrator

In your case, space or global status sets may work better than personal sets.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

@Natalie Paramonova _StiltSoft_ thank you for the above details. I don't know if you know the answer to this, and I will check with them, but when I look undr handy status, I only see Global and Personal statuses. Do you know if this would just be a matter of our system admin enabling it? 

Hi @Dailin Garcia Young ,

This is the expected behavior. If I understand your question correctly, you'll see the space status sets when you're editing a page from this specific space that the status set is created for.

Hi @Natalie Paramonova _StiltSoft_ when I go to edit the handy status today, all i can see are some listed under Global and then the ones that I have created. There is nothing showing "Space statuses". Would that be because the Space Status have not been enabled? I wanted to confirm that in fact that does come out of the box with confluence and its just a matter of our admin team enabling that so that I can see it and add Space statuses.

Hi @Dailin Garcia Young ,

You need to be a space administrator to add status sets to spaces in the space tools:



Space status sets looks the following way:
