is it possible to move issue status from the issue detail view?

Is it possible to change an issue status from the issue detail view? During our agile ceremonies if a ticket needs to be moved, we have to open up the issue detail view, and then click the hyperlink to open up the ticket in a new window. It would be much more efficient if we could simply flip it from the issue detail view. Not sure if this is something that can be configured...issue detail view.png

Hi @Mike Kavalchuk,

the other option you could go for is to use keyboard shortcuts.

When you select an issue, simply press the "." (dot) key which brings up a small dialog where you can type in the name of the operation you want to do with the issue, e.g. transition it to another status. Type the name of the transition, select the corresponding option and press return.

Click the three dots and choose more actions, then enter your status there and choose the transition:

Thank you for the workaround. This is way harder than it should be. An in-place dropdown would be more efficient.
