Hello,

 

I have a project type "Team-managed business" for which I'm not able to edit the name of a subtask workflow status.

Here is the error I got: "Already exists. Try a different name".

Why am I not able to setup this name?

Hi @Gwendoline Jehannin

A few things could be happening here.

  1. You might be trying to rename an existing status to same name as a status that already exists.
  2. You're trying to create a new status with the same name as the existing status.

You could try giving it another name or renaming an existing status.  

This really could be that since the name you want, "Backlog" already exists - the system is trying to prompt you for a different name.
