Hi @_Lilach Ofek__  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, that should be possible. What type of project are you using? Team-managed? Company-managed? Jira Work Management? 

You will first need to modify the workflow used by the project to include the new status. Then you can publish the workflow and then edit the board to make the new status to a new column on the board. 

If it is a Jira Work Management project, the column will be added automatically when you add the status to the workflow and publish it.

Great - you can modify the workflow then, publish it, and then edit the board to add the column and drag the status to the new column.

Mr Funk:

How do we modify the workflow exactly? I got about 4 levels deep into my help search with no real resolution.

I created 2 new columns in my Kanban board. But I am unable to drag issues from "to-do" or "in-progress" to the new columns.
