Adding new status tracking (blocker)?

Hi everyone!

I'm needing some guidance on how we might add an additional status update tracker:  Blocker or "Blocked".


Is that something I can do if I'm on a free JIRA plan?

Thank you everyone.

Hi Tanya,

What type of Project have you created? 

Adding a status can be as easy as adding a column on a board in Team-managed projects or Jira Core/Business Projects. 

Hi John


I'm not sure how to answer your question, so let me explain:


We have issues, in Epics, and for each one, we mark off "Done", "In Progress", etc for their status as it's worked on or completed.

In stand up meetings, this progress status may change... and one change could be that it's "blocked".

See screenshot here....

Ah, that's helpful - thank you. 

Actually, you can just right click on the card and select Add flag to mark the card as "blocked". That is the function and terminology that we use - we add the flag but we refer to it as being blocked.
