Unable to add a status in column management as a site admin Edited

Currently I am able to create new Columns in jobs I create, but I'm unable to add a status to them, and therefore they don't appear in the Active Sprints view.

See attached screenshot.

Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 2.43.34 pm.pngI want to create and add an "In Progress" status to the "Ready for Review" column, but the "Add Status" button is greyed out even though I'm a site admin. Is this a limitation of Simplified Workflow?

Is your user account inside the Administrators project role of the project France-Soir Wine Shop?

I've since assigned my account to all admin groups and now I've got full functionality. Thanks :)

I've the same issue!?!

But how do I assign my account to all admin groups???

It's OK I found it.

Go into each project your board includes, and check the permission scheme.  Make sure your account matches the rules for "project administration".  Most of us use roles, so you will probably find you need to make sure you add your self to each of the project's "admin" roles.
