How can you change the status in the Edit Issue screen?

I'm trying to make it easier for users to update a ticket all at once instead of updating multiple fields individually.


Right now I have everything the way I want it, but I can't figure out ( or if its even possible ) to add the ability change the status in the edit issue screen.


I want users to be able to make the following edits to the task:

1. change assignee (figured this out)

2. update custom fields (figured this out)

3. add time logged (figured this out)

4. change status (i.e. in progress to ready for merge)

Status is changed via workflow in JIRA and editing the screen. Thus, if you wish to change the status then you have to click on the workflow button.
