How to adjust columns for new workflow?

I have a new workflow where I think I can differ my statuses into two groups.

1. Stacks (To Do, Ready for Testing, Reopend, Done)

2. Under Work (In Progress, Under Testing)

It would be nice, if anyone could help me implementing this within the column management since all I come up with is to add a column for all the statuses above. Or would be this the normal procedure?


Thanks an advance!

Assuming you have JIRA Software, yes, create a new board, define the columns and put the status in the right ones.

I'd recommend a different set though - having "done" in with the three "needs looking at" status does not make a lot of sense, and the boards tend to rely on the right hand column really meaning "done".  JIRA Software boards default to "to do", "in progress" and "done", so you'll only really need to do the status mapping and a couple of renames.
