Status Transition Rules

Is there a way to restrict the ability to change a status based on transition rules?

Example: Item status must be in “Working on it” to transition status to “Done”.
I want to restrict the ability to go from “ToDo” to “Done”.

Hey @Italo,

I like this idea! Transparently, this functionality isn’t natively supported in the platform at this stage, and I apologise for the setback. That being said, I am interested if you could set up an automation in the meantime to notify the relevant person (or yourself) if the status has changed from to-do to done so it can be checked on?

I understand this isn’t your ideal approach, but I am intersted if it could work in the meantime!

Hi @Italo :wave:
Welcome to the community!

Also if you need calculating the time between Item statuses i recommend you to try Time in Status app which helps to track time the Item has spent in each workflow status easily. So you can monitor how fast the Item moves between statuses.
You’ll get user-friendly data on the board in a few seconds.

Also you will be able to track how much time your issue spends in each status and much more by generating:

:chart_with_upwards_trend: And use charts to visualize your reports a sample of a certain number according to time range/item range, or a single item:

  • Pie Charts
  • Bar Charts
  • Area Charts

The app is also available in the format of board integration.

Hope you find this app helpful,
