I know this was proposed a few years ago but I think it would be an easy addition for the monday.com team and useful for other teams. Changing the default colour in the status.
Hi @jackw ,
If I understand your request correctly and if you are an admin of your Monday account, you can go to the Administration section → Customization → Boards and customize the status names and colors that will show up by default in newly created boards.

Hope this helps!
No, they want to change the gray status everything starts out to to a certain color.
@jackw you could use the “item defaults” to set items to a certain default value though.
Just beware these behave like automations, so if you have another automation setup to change the status to something, you could experience a race condition where the default overrides your automation.
Yeah this would work. However in Kanban view I can’t get rid of the default status which is really frustrating
