Marking a User Story status- Won't Do

 I have a User Story and want to change the status field to Won't Do and add a comment. 
The User Story is a duplicate

You'll need to add "won't do" to the workflow.

Might not be the best option - most of us would consider "won't do" (or in this case, "duplicate") as a resolution saying why we consider the issue "done", rather than a status, but if you need it as a status for reporting, that's fine.  Ask your admins to add it to your workflow.

Hi Arcolia - we use a status called Discarded with a Done type status category. The Resolution is then set to Obsolete in our case - or you could set the Resoluton to Won't Do or something similar. 

How do you set the Resolution to Won't Do for a User Story.?

John Funk Community Leader Jun 08, 2021

You will need to add a status for Discarded or whatever your like to call it. Then add a post function to the transition to this new status where you set the Resolution to Won't Do.
