Added new ticket status

How would I go about adding a new ticket status? Management wants an
’in-progress’ status. I thought this would have been a database table but
it looks like it’s hard coded.

Hard, easy?

What would the difference between “in-progress” and “open” be?

Adding new ticket statuses is, sadly, not as simple as it should be. The
code needs to be refactored a bit to get the list of statuses enumerated
in a single place. From there, we can look at moving it into the database
in the future.

the verbage some people don’t think that open is a good status work
to use in some work enviorments

What would the difference between “in-progress” and “open” be?

There are tons of ways to classify things. I could use for a state
between “open” (meaning to me, it has been read, and someone is
thinking about it) and “resolved” called “analyzed” (meaning, someone
has figured it out, but it is not totally resolved yet). "Stalled"
doesn’t to it for me here.
