I have created a new Kanban project that is using the Agile simplified workflow, I have gon into:
Board>Configure>Columns. Clicked add column and given the new column a name. However there is no status being automatically created and the new column is not appearing on the board.
What am I missing?
Ah, well, that answers is - you haven't got the simplified workflow, so all you can do is maintain columns. You can simplify the workflow, but you're going to need to work out why the board cannot be simplified and fix that first. The usual culprit is "I have more than one workflow in one of the projects on the board",
You can either use a set scheme with all the flexibility of multiple workflows and varying conditions/post functions/validators, OR you can use the simplified workflow. It's one or the other. As soon as you set up your extra workflow and apply it to the project, it's no longer simplified, and your project admins will not be able to add status. They can still mess with board columns and put the status specified in your workflows into them.
