Can I assign a user to a specific status (when User leaves selection as Unassigned)?

Am I able to assign a specific user to a specific status?  Kinda like you can with Components.  In other words, lets say I have 4 sates:

To Do --> Analysis --> Development --> Complete

And let's say Bob is my only BA....so when the issue moves from the "To Do" state to "Analysis" AND the user chooses "Anasigned" as the user, can the system be smart enought to reassign the issue to a "default" user for the status?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Christopher,

you can use a post function in the workflow step to assign a user to an issue at this point.
