My users are lazy with changing the statuses. I would like to add the status buttons to the Assign screen so that whenever they assign the task to someone else, they will also change the status - all in the same screen.
Can that be done?
you can try with following JS by adding in announcement banner
if it worked then i suggest to remove the code from announcement banner and load it as webresource module in a plugin, for your reference check this
That's really not a simple change. The "status buttons" are not performing simple actions, they're triggering movements of an issue through the workflow, which means conditions, validators, screens, post-functions, and so-on.
To take the simple action you've suggested - you want to go from "in progress" to "resolved". Specifically, how would you handle the screen this transition needs to present to the user to gather resolution information?
Two options spring to mind
1) A hack to remove "assign" from the options on an issue, forcing people to use transitions if they want to re-assign issues
2) Use a listener to catch "issue assigned" and perform the relevant transition when people do it.
