Automatic change of task status

If I have workflow: Waiting To Do >To Do >In Progress> Done.
Can tasks automatically change the status of "Waiting To Do" to "To Do" when I click Start Sprint?
Is this option somewhere in the settings?

This isn't possible out-of-the-box. You should be able to Shift+Click all of the items in a sprint, right click, and bulk transition them all at once though.

You can probably accomplish this with one of the nifty new automation plugins too.
