sub-task status values?

Can a sub-task have a different set of STATUS values than the associated parent task? 

I'm trying to find a configuration setting option for this but coming up empty. 
I'd appreciate any guidance offered.

sure. just create a unique workflow w/ desired statuses and associate the sub-task issue to that workflow. you might find this read useful - Workflows 

Thank VERY much for the redirection to the workflow documentation.  Spot on!

Hello @John Driscoll 

Are you working with a NextGen project or a Classic project?

I work with Classic projects, so my answer is specific to that scenario.

Yes, in Classic projects Sub-tasks can have a different set of Statuses than the associated parent issue. You would need to create a custom workflow that includes those statuses and their transitions, then in the Workflow Scheme for your project add that custom workflow and assign it to the Sub-tasks issue type(s) for that project.

Yes - Classic Projects.  Thanks for the custom workflow suggestion Trudy.  Very clever!
