Change Workflow gives you a regular insight into what is occurring within your Change processes, the people involved, and a sense of how effectively your team meets its deadlines.
You can create workflows for each Changes Type with assigned Permission Roles or User Groups.
Settings > Customization > Changes > Statuses
Create a Workflow
To create a workflow for a Changes Type:

Set Status Order Priority
Set the order priority of the Status in the workflow or Status field by entering a number in the bottom right corner box:
- Statuses must have an order priority number to appear in the workflow or the Status field.
- Numbers must be positive integers, for example, 1, 2, 3. Zero is also acceptable.
- Numbers must be unique. For example, if you enter 1, 2, 2, 3, only one of the ‘2′ Statuses appears in the Status drop-down menu.
