This view is of the list of fields you have, it's not where you customise status.  Status is a function of the workflow, you'll need to edit the workflow.

Thanks Nic, I have edited workflows before but having a hard time finding it in Jira Software, do you know where it is? Thanks again.

Jira Settings -> Issues -> Status is one way to get to the global list of status.

Jira Settings -> Issues -> Workflows is probably more useful, as it lets you edit workflows with a bit more context (the status list above really is just the list of all available status, mostly out of any context where they might be being used)

Or, probably the best way, as you remain fully within the area you're looking at, go to the project you want to change and look at the project settings.  That can take you to the board and/or workflow settings you want to change far more quickly!

Hi Will - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Is this a Classic Project or a Next-gen project? 

Hey John, it’s a next-gen project.

Try adding a new column to the board and see if that helps you. 


Maybe, this screenshot will help you.2020-01-11_20-31-42.png

Hell @Will_Bebee

Given you are working with a next-gen project I'd recommend you add new statuses through the board itself as new columns. You can then add transition logic by adding 'Rules' to the board. This you can access by click on the meatballs button at the top right of the board view and then clicking on 'Manage Rules'.
