Here at monday.com, we strive to give you an intuitive, visual platform that manages everything in one place. Our Status Column is a key factor in helping you plan, organize, and track all of your team's work according to status labels. Easily see if a task is yet to be completed, in progress, done, or any other status that you wish.
Add the Column
To add the Status Column, simply click on the + sign in the far right of the board's column section and choose Status from the dropdown menu:
Customize the labels
Now it's time to edit the Status labels specialized to your workflow. To do this, click on one of the Status column cells and click on Edit Labels button at the bottom:
Here you can change the order of the Status labels, text, color, and add additional labels to suit your needs. You can have up to 40 status labels with different colors. Don't forget to click "Apply" once you've finished customizing. 😊
Do note, if the end of your status label is cut off because your Status Column is too narrow, you can easily resize it! All you need to do is click on the right edge of your Status Column near to column title and drag it to the right to resize it as you wish.
In each of your boards, you can choose the labels that define a Status as "done". Click on the three dots at the top right of your Status Column to access Settings. Click "Customize Status column". From there, choose the color or colors you want to associate with "done" items.
Add a column summary to show progress
Add a column summary to your Status Column to see the progress in one glance. Click on the three dots at the top right of the column to access Settings and choose "Show column summary".
You have a choice to show a thumbnail of what's done or all the Status labels in the column summary. Just click on the column summary and choose to your liking!
Enhance your team's communication by corresponding directly within the Status Column! To communicate on a specific Status, simply click the + sign located in the top right corner of any Status box.
The Status Update will also be showcased in the item's Updates section!
