How can I make the columns's status always on display?

I would like to see a column's status at any time, not only when I'm dragging a ticket from column to column.

Hi @Danielle Silva 

There's no specific method to keep a columns status(es) visible at all times.

If you are using a Classic project/board, you could rename the columns on a board to reflect the status names (especially if you have one status per column).

To rename columns:

  1. On your board, go to the breadcrumbs (...) in the top-right corner, and select Board Settings
  2. In settings, from the left-hand menu, select Columns
  3. Modify the column headers to the names you wish to have. To edit a column header, hover over it and click it when the pencil icon appears

In Next-Gen projects/boards, it isn't possible to modify the column headers, but the columns do default to status names.
