Hi Kamil,

Is this a Company-managed or Team-managed project? 

And, no, you can't rename a status to the same name as an existing status. 

You need to Copy the workflow you want to change. Then in the copy version of the workflow, you need to delete the current status and replace it with the other status. 

Then you need to update the Workflow Scheme to change out the current workflow for the new one you created by copying. 

This is all assuming it is a Company-managed project.
