Different statuses

I dunno about anybody else, but the current "status" field doesn't really suit my way of thinking about my TODO list.

At my work, we use a system whereby there are statuses like "Work in progress" and "Scheduled." I find it to work well.

In Toodledo, I have "planning," "postponed," "waiting," and "someday."

When I have something scheduled, is it:

-Planning? Not really, as I've already planned it.

-Postponed? Not really, because it's probably on time, it's just not happening right now.

-Waiting? Maybe, but "waiting" tends to imply I'm waiting on somebody else, not necessarily waiting for the right time.

-Someday? Not really, as I take that to be an indefinite wait rather than a scheduled wait.

It's a rather minor thing I guess, as I suppose I can just use "waiting" for scheduled stuff and "hold" when I'm waiting for somebody else. But it would be nice if we could customize our statuses for our own workflow.

Thanks for the suggestion. The status field is not currently editable, but you might consider using folders, contexts, goals, locations or tags in place of status, since all of these fields are editable.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I guess I could use contexts or tags, as I'm not really using them anyways.

It just helps to have my workflow reflect what I use at work, as my work pretty much enforces a certain workflow, so I'm comfortable with it.
