Why cany I see the button to create status (when adding colums to a borad)

I'm new to Jira and appear to be having issues with creating my teams standard setup before we are able to roll out.


I've looked at numerous guides that state I should be able to set new colums and status as I'm an admin... but I dont appear to have the button where it shows it on all the guides.


Ultimately I am trying to set up a company wide standard board which everyone uses so we can have a board over the top which has line of site to all projects and tasks.  I'd like uniform colums in place to make that align.


Any help appreciated.

Hi Michael - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Boards display issues because on the projects included in the board filter. Those projects then are attached to workflows, which determine the statuses that show up to be mapped to columns as showing in your image. 

So, I suspect the project being used by the board is not associated with a workflow that includes the In Sign Off status.
