Create a List of Case Statuses for an Institution

Institutional Administrators can create, reorder, update and delete a set of color-coded statuses to be used by an institution. Statuses are created and managed from the Administration Settings page. Statuses can only be set at the highest level of an institutional hierarchy and once created they can be applied to any case created by the institution or any of its lower units (schools, departments, and more). Unit Administrators, Case Managers, and Committee Managers can apply and remove these statuses on the individual Case page of a candidate. 


Note that statuses can also be created at a case level and applied to a particular case by Unit Administrators, Case Managers, or Committee Managers. However, such statuses are only available for the case in which they are created. Statuses are not available across an institution.
