Project Status



Project statuses indicate which phase a project is currently in. Project statuses let you define and communicate the overall progress of projects. Each status has a label and a color that lets people see at a glance which stage a project is in.

Project statuses appear in the following areas:

Project statuses are also available as filters in Insights dashboards, such as the Project Health dashboard.

You can set a project status from the project workspace using the drop-down menu to the right of the project name.


Note: Project participants on either the provider or client side that have enabled Project Status Updated notifications will receive a notification when the project status changes. External project participants on the client side will not receive a notification however.

You can also set the status of multiple projects at once using bulk actions in the Project List—check the projects to update, then select a status in the Set Status menu.

The Set Status menu

Anyone who is participating in a project on the provider side can see and set the project status, regardless of their account or project permission. Clients cannot see or set the project status.

The following is a list of the status colors and what they mean:

  • Grey: Not yet started
  • Light Green: Close to starting
  • Green: In progress
  • Yellow: In progress with a pending action
  • Red: In progress with a blocker or ended
  • Blue: Finished
