Updating Workflow Status Names after multi-workflow affected change

Cloud software.

Created a new company managed prohject, and customized the unqiue workflow.

To-do = requested

In profress = partial

Done = received


Super great, but it has no changed all other statuses with to-do, in progress, and done. 

I didn't want this. I thought my unique workflow wouldn't let this happen.


Now when I go to edit the status name, it says that this name already exists.

How can I get all of those workflows status back to their original. I can't create a new status since it will break all of the items already done in these mature boards.


I don't have backup copies for the workflows, this new simple workflow over wrote all of the other statuses and not can't change them back.

Hey Phillip,

Your workflow is unique, but the statuses are able to be edited, if a status is edited then it will edit the status everywhere it exists.

When you go to create a unique status to avoid this happening you will need to create a new status instead of editing the existing status.

When you implement the workflow, the system will ask you when you associate the workflow which existing status's do you want to associate to which new statuses in the project.

thank you, I have learned the hard way.
