This question would become moot if https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-2521is ever implemented. However, I notice that if a column has two statuses and you are moving from a different column you are given a choice of which status to set the issue to. However, the same mechanism doesn't appear to be in place when trying to change from one status to another when both statuses are in the same column (i.e. Coding In Progress, Coding Complete). If this isn't possible, I think I understand why, but I thought I would ask just in case there is something that I'm missing that would allow someone to do this (at least until/unless that above issue is resolved as I can do what I want to do correctly instead of this workaround).
No, you're not missing anything, it's a known flaw that you can't use the boards to drag from one status to another if they're in the same column on the board. It still works in Jira (the transitions are still there), but the only option in Agile at the moment is to move it to another column and then back again.
There's an issue for it in the GHS project, but I can't find it at the moment
