Activating Workflow for a next gen software project


i want to add new status for Epics and Stories - I created a workflow and assigned it to a workflow scheme.

But can't activate this yet as the project does not appear to be allowed to link to workflow scheme in order to activate.

I have basic status (i.e. to do, in progress and done) which is not allowing me to manage day to day project work. I have admin access

Hi Dharmesh - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You cannot change out Workflow Schemes for Next-gen Projects. You have to modify the originally created workflow by adding and rearranging columns on your board. 

If you need additional functionality, you would need to create a Classic software project and move the issues from your Next-gen project to the new Classic project. 

Thank you for the prompt reply - understand the constraints
