Deleted user June 8, 2021

 I have a User Story and want to change the status field to Won't Do and add a comment. 
The User Story is a duplicate

You'll need to add "won't do" to the workflow.

Might not be the best option - most of us would consider "won't do" (or in this case, "duplicate") as a resolution saying why we consider the issue "done", rather than a status, but if you need it as a status for reporting, that's fine.  Ask your admins to add it to your workflow.

Hi Arcolia - we use a status called Discarded with a Done type status category. The Resolution is then set to Obsolete in our case - or you could set the Resoluton to Won't Do or something similar.

How do you set the Resolution to Won't Do for a User Story.?

You will need to add a status for Discarded or whatever your like to call it. Then add a post function to the transition to this new status where you set the Resolution to Won't Do.

So after marking the user story Won't Do, where can you find it again?
