Answering  Bryan's Q.   Grouping a bunch of states in the Status help to tell if it is in Open or Close state, eg.   

Status:   New,  Assigned, DEV delivered,  QA in Progress,  Worked as Design, Verified, etc

Color Blue on DEV delivered, Worked as Design   -  Closed state

Color Greg on New, QA in Progress,  Need Info  - Open state

Able to do the color category in Status in Classic but not  in next-gen

@mleong Thanks for the feedback, we are actively working on introducing the workflow editor to next-gen. You will definitely be able to define the three status categories then.

For now, the first column is a "To-do" status category = grey; middle columns: "In Progress" = blue; and Done = green

Hey @diego ,

My name is Bryan Lim and I'm a Product Manager on Jira Software Next-gen. Unfortunately, we don't allow the changing of status category colors. If you had the ability to change colors of status categories, what would you do with it?
