We’ve had a lot of requests for the ability to add your own custom statuses. I’m pleased to announce that we’ve now added this to Feature Upvote. Custom statuses are now available for all our customers.

Creating a custom status with emoji

Your board comes with a set of built-in statuses:

These work well for many teams. However, your workflow might have additional statuses you’d like to add, such as “In progress” or “In testing”. Custom statuses allow you to add these to your feedback board.

Now you can add any number of custom statuses to your board.

Did I mention emojis? You can add emojis to statuses. You can even get rid of text and go 100% emoji if that is right for your customer base.

Our help centre explains how to create your own statuses for your feedback board.
