All requests that are registered in SuperOffice have a status, such as Open, Closed or Postponed. Select Request in the navigator and in the Request status tab, you can see the request statuses already defined in the system, and create additional request statuses. A request status must be linked to one of the system's internal statuses, such as Open or Closed. Each internal status must be linked to at least one request status.
For example, you can create a new status called "Waiting for reply" as a more detailed variant of either Closed or Open, depending on how you want the system to process and report this status internally. You can also link custom logic to such statuses to streamline your business processes.
