Change Status Name used in many workflows

I need to change a status name used in 40+ active workflows. Is there a way to "bulk" name change?


A user (with admin rights) modified the name of "In Progress" to her own status and it changed our "In Progress" status across all workflows to her own status. I'm trying to avoid going into each workflow and fixing her mess.

Hi Tonya,

The initial change will need to be reverted first.  If you change one of the default statuses that will change it on every other issue as you have seen so to get the In Progress status back for your other issues you'll need to revert that status back to In Progress.

Once that is corrected, you should create a new status and have the other user create a workflow and add that status to the workflow and use that in their projects.
